Pakistan Emergency Flood Relief
Diadem International’s objective in Pakistan is the empowerment of the poor and marginalised through the establishment of:
-Schools and equipping centres
-Interfaith Dialogue centres
-Shelters for victims of discriminatory laws and offering legal support.
We are in partnership with the Shahbaz Bhatti Memorial Trust (SBMT) with some projects.
Thanks to you who gave to our relief effort following the unprecedented 2010 monsoon floods in Pakistan.
Your prayer and financial support has enabled us to partner with the late Shahbaz Bhatti (Federal Minister of Minorities) and now the Shahbaz Bhatti Memorial Trust to channel vital assistance to affected areas. We have been able to provide life-saving, immediate assistance to respond to the needs around us. We continue working in partnership by providing food, water, shelter and clothes for those affected.
Pakistan is still struggling to rebuild following the devastating floods a year ago which left one-fifth of the country under water. More than 800,000 families remain without permanent shelter from the 2010 country-wide floods, aid groups say, and more than a million need food assistance.
Pakistan faces a new crisis as monsoon rains have affected Sindh province and over two million people in Pakistan are suffering from flood-related diseases following torrential rain in Sindh province. Pakistan’s largest city of Karachi, and the wider Sindh province, has been brought to a standstill. Floodwaters have destroyed or damaged 1.2 million houses and flooded 4.5 million acres (1.8 million hectares) since late August. They need our help and prayer.
Diadem International continues to be involved and the rebuilding work continues. Here is a list of relief emergency needs for Karachi and Sindh province Pakistan right now:
-Temporary shelter kits
-Emergency health care services
Diadem International and the people of Pakistan need prayer:
- For immediate relief and assistance, many are stranded and need rescuing.
- For provision and protection to face yet another huge disaster.
- For strength and courage so they can rise up to this challenge in Gods strength.
Floods do not distinguish between gender, ethnicity, socio-economic group, or religion. Everyone has been affected. We work to assist everyone, including God’s people in these communities, and seek to show the love of God where-ever we go. If you would like to join us in helping Pakistan, in most recent crisis please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for wiring/telegraphic transfer instructions and details.
Love, from all the team at Diadem International Pakistan and UK.
