Pakistan flooding: UN chief urges global response | DW News

DW News – Sep 9, 2022

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday appealed for more global support for Pakistan as two months of rainfall has inundated large swathes of the country.

More than 1,391 people have been killed as Pakistan after record monsoon rains and glacier melt in northern mountains triggered devastating floods. Unprecedented loss of property, livestock, and crops, has impacted nearly 33 million people in the country.

“At this stage, food is one of the biggest requirements as people have lost everything,” Adil Sheraz, CARE Country Director Pakistan, told DW, highlighting other needs, including shelter, clean drinking water, medical supplies, and sanitation facilities.
