Natural and man-made disasters in Pakistan have badly affected the lives and socioeconomic condition of communities. The plight of human sufferings due to flash floods ,earthquakes and terrorism have been real challenges for both, to communities and to the emergency relief organizations as well.
Muslim Aid has been responding to every emergency in Pakistan since 2005. Our rapid and need based emergency response has served and saved millions of people in Pakistan. During the earthquake of 2005 in Azad Jammu Kashmir, Muslim Aid has served 75000 individuals. Similarly in the cyclone of 2007 in Baluchistan and Sindh , our emergency teams were there to help out affected communities. One year later in 2008, Muslim Aid served 50,000 earthquake affected communities of Balochistan. Again In 2009 when country was facing the IDPs, (Internally Displaced Persons ) crises conflict based areas, Muslim Aid provided food , shelter and educational support to the internally displaced communities of NWFP, Sawat,Malakand and FATA areas in Sawabi and Mardan.
While in 2010 , when catastrophic floods left 20 million people homeless , Muslim Aid was among those first organizations who immediately started its emergency response in all 3 flood affected provinces with the provision of Shelter , WASH, NFIs and Healthcare facilities. In 2011 and then in 2012 , devastating flooding again struck in Sindh and Punjab in which following our emergency response , Muslim Aid has implemented multiple projects by distributing relief items, NFI Kist , installing water pumps, establishing medical camps with free delivery of medicines, and rebuilding damaged health and educational facilities of flood affected areas. Our dedicated teams are still working in the previous emergency -hit areas to empower people in the longer-term, to rebuild their lives and gradually move away from emergency care by removing their sufferings.
