We cannot allow children saved from drowning to die of disease. We must prevent the fatal fall from diarrheoa to dehydration to death.


18 August 2010: UNICEF Regional Director Daniel Toole's visit to relief camps in Sukkur, Pakistan.

Pakistan is submerged in a humanitarian crisis so massive that the actual scale continues to elude the imagination of the public across the world. The monsoonal floods since July is affecting even more people than the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami and 2010 Haiti earthquake combined.

According to United Nations estimates, 20.5 million people are affected by the floods, while some 1,800 people have been reported dead and almost 2,800 injured. More than 160,000 sq km of land - a fifth of the country - have been affected by the disaster, an area larger than the size of Peninsular Malaysia (131,587 sq km).

Some 10 million children are now believed to be affected by the floods and many need immediate, life-saving assistance. Vulnerable to abuse or exploitation in crisis conditions, these children will also need protection and psycho-social support.

UNICEF is working on the ground to ensure that life-saving aid is getting through. This includes safe drinking water, medical supplies and vaccinations for children against measles and polio as well nutrition for children and pregnant women.

Every day, the situation is getting more critical for children. Recognising the enormity of the crisis and with needs increasing, UNICEF has revised its Appeal to US$ 252.3 million (RM 804.84 million). This amount will cover a 12 month period from August 2010 to end of July 2011.

You can protect children in Pakistan by donating now to the Pakistan Disaster Relief Fund by Media Prima and New Straits Times Press (NSTP) in support of UNICEF:

§ RM 50:   provides 200 sachets of oral rehydration salts to protect children from dehydration and diarrhea

§ RM 100: provides 6 families with clean water for 1 day

§ RM 150: provides immunisation for 30 children

UNICEF is not funded by the United Nations. One third of our contributions come from the private sector which include corporates and individuals like you.
