Aid group laments response to Pakistan’s ‘heart-wrenching’ floods

August 20, 2010 No Comment

Bangalore, India (ENI). Church-backed aid groups are calling for people around the world to step up to the plate and help those suffering the worst floods in the history of Pakistan, with one agency describing the international response as, “far from adequate”.

“The majority of them [those affected by the floods] still remain without food, drinking water, shelter and medication, [and] more damage is expected in Sindh Province as the second wave of floods is approaching,” cautioned U.S.-based Church World Service on August 16.

At the same time the Geneva-based Lutheran World Federation announced on August 19 that two of its disaster relief specialists have been sent to Pakistan to assist the church-based ACT Alliance in providing emergency assistance to the victims of the flooding.
