Appeal Target: US$ 5,135,305
Balance Requested: US$ 880,993
Geneva, 11 May 2012
The monsoon rains that started in the second week of August 2011, evolved into a large-scale disaster, causing damage in various parts of the country and further increased the difficulties of the flood-affected population. Decreased accessibility and disrupted communication links made the relief operations more challenging. Sindh was the worst affected province where monsoon rains affected 22 out of 23 districts, whereas Mirpurkhas, Badin, Sanghar, Tando Allahyar, Tando Mohammad Khan, Dadu, Thatta and Shaheed Benazirabad were among the worst affected districts. According to National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) as of October 19, the monsoon rains had affected over 9.7 million people (35 percent women) in Sindh.
