Japan Platform (JPF), an emergency humanitarian aid organization, has launched an emergency response program on September 15 in response to the current situation in Pakistan that has been hit by repeated flooding since June of this year and is experiencing the worst level of damages in its history.

According to Pakistan's National Disaster Management Authority, the floods have so far taken the lives of more than 1,400 people and affected more than 33 million people*1. More than a third of the country has been submerged, and more than 1.5 million houses have been damaged*2, especially in Sindh Province where the damage is concentrated. According to the 2022 Pakistan Flood Response Plan (FRP)*3, which was jointly announced by the Government of Pakistan and the United Nations on August 30, the number of people in need of assistance is estimated to be approximately 6.4 million, and this requires US$160.3 million in aid.

JPF has begun accepting donations for this response today. We ask for your support to deliver prompt and effective assistance to this region.
