ShelterBox partners in Pakistan are distributing 400 tents to survivors of the devastating floods that continue to ravage the country.
Rotary Karachi and the NDMA (National Disaster Management Agency) are now distributing the tents in the Sindh province in south east Pakistan, the latest area to be affected by the spreading floodwater.
The 400 tents were taken from a prepositioned stock of 900 that were sent to southern Pakistan in June, in addition to the 1,000 that ShelterBox positioned in the north of the country.
John Leach, Head of Operations, said: ‘This disaster is still evolving as the flood water moves further south towards the Arabian Sea displacing thousands more people as it spreads. Our hearts go out to everyone caught up in the disaster.’
