THE STORY:

"Donor Exhaustion Worries Aid Organisations After Devastating Floods"

(http://www.france24.com/en/20100810-pakistan-floods-aid-orgaisations-concerned-donations-action-against-hunger):

According to the United Nations, devastating floods in Pakistan are a humanitarian disaster that eclipses the 2004 Tsunami and the Haiti earthquake put together, in terms of the number of people made homeless.
Although the number of deaths is much smaller – 1,600 at the latest count (August 10), nearly 14 million people have been made homeless, compared with 200,000 in the Asian tsunami and three million in Haiti.

Action Against Hunger/ACF International says:

Pakistan has been hit by the worst flooding in its history, with an estimated 20 million people affected. Monsoons have swept away homes, bridges, and roads, leaving millions displaced and in need of immediate assistance.
“The situation is truly catastrophic,” says Nan Dale, Executive Director of Action Against Hunger’s U.S. headquarters. “Survivors are in desperate need of clean water and sanitation, so our focus is on these areas. We’ll also be helping families whose lives have been turned upside down recover their livelihoods.”

Active in Pakistan since 2005, Action Against Hunger | ACF International is appealing for urgent funding for our immediate and long-term response in hard-hit areas, including the northwestern region of the country and Sindh province.

Providing Emergency Water & Sanitation - ACF’s field teams will provide access to clean water through water trucking, repair water points, disinfect contaminated sources, and distribute purification tablets. Our emergency response will also include constructing emergency latrines and public sanitation facilities, distributing thousands of hygiene kits, organizing hygiene promotion campaigns, and helping communities clear the streets of rubble and debris.

Bolstering Food Security & Livelihoods - Millions of families have lost everything—homes, livestock, crops, and their only sources of income. Action Against Hunger’s teams are planning “cash-for-work” programs to help families regain their livelihoods and will distribute household items to people left with nothing. As part of our recovery efforts, we will provide vouchers to purchase basic necessities and micro-grants for restarting small businesses.
