Pakistan Red Crescent Society: Flash flood recovery programme 2010–2013

Heavy rains starting from 21 July 2010 triggered both flash and river floods in several parts of Pakistan, claiming over 1,900 lives and causing widespread population displacement. The provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh were among the worst affected areas. The devastating floods caused damage of unprecedented scale to agricultural lands and the livelihoods of families who rely heavily on rural economies. During the three-year operation, the Pakistan Red Crescent Society, IFRC and other Participating National Societies made great efforts to provide food, shelter and access to clean water and sanitation to the affected population. As part of these efforts, the Pakistan Red Crescent Society implemented a cash transfer programme intended to support the livelihoods of vulnerable flood affected households in the provinces Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh.
