Southwestern Baluchistan and southern Sindh provinces were the hardest hit. Video showed swollen rivers and gushing floodwaters submerging towns, destroying buildings, washing away villages, bridges, roads and other infrastructure.

More than 100 districts across four provinces have been hit by the floods, with Balochistan’s capital Quetta isolated from the rest of the country as many highways and bridges have been swept away by the deluge.

In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, where nearly 200 people have been killed, rescue efforts were in full swing, particularly in the worst-hit areas of Swat and Dir

We took immediate step to set up a relief camp and started collecting on line donations.

Within 48 hours of our Balochistan, Saraiki Waseeb and Sindh finance appeal, we are able to collect 765,000 Rupees ($4600) till now. Thank you all those who contributed, our target is 1.5 million Rupees, almost half have been raised,

A group of 4 volunteer doctors along 5 comrades with over 500,000 Rupees medicine has left Lahore last night for effected Saraiki Waseeb districts for medical camp, we contributed part of it,

Those who have yet to contribute, please contribute to ESSF finance appeal
