Don’t forget about Pakistan

Pakistan is underwater — literally. By now, you may be aware of the torrential monsoon rains that caused severe flooding in Pakistan. These floods wiped out entire villages; around one-third of Pakistan is currently underwater and over 30 million people have been affected by these devastating floods. However, coverage of floods has dropped drastically since Hurricane Fiona made landfall in Puerto Rico and Hurricane Ian in Florida, causing widespread destruction. Even though it’s been over three months since the floods started, Pakistan’s people are still in desperate need of help. New Yorkers with family members in Pakistan are mobilizing to help their families back home.
