Pakistan Floods

Heavy seasonal rainfall and consequent floods across several major geographic areas of Pakistan, including Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, have so far killed over 1,300 people and left 33 million people homeless. Severe food shortages, lack of shelter, contaminated drinking water and hazardous travel will result in ongoing hardship for families, women and children.

ADRA is responding immediately by providing food packages to vulnerable families and establishing safe drinking water distribution points.

African Hunger Crisis

The Horn of Africa is facing a fourth consecutive below-average rainfall season. The exceptionally long drought, amplified by warmer-than-normal temperatures, has devastated livelihoods, livestock herds, crops and vegetation, water availability, household incomes, and has increased displacement. A UNOCHA report (July 2022) projects 19.4 million are affected by drought in the Horn of Africa and 3.32 million children are at risk of dropping out of school. The report further adds that 18.6 million people are facing acute food insecurity and malnutrition is rising across Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia.

ADRA is supporting children and their families through school feeding programs in Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia, and South Sudan. Relief efforts extend to livelihood activities to combat the devastating effects of the drought.

 

Ukraine Response

ADRA is working with our team in Ukraine to provide urgent humanitarian aid including water, food, shelter, blankets and clothing. We are also working with our ADRA teams in surrounding countries, including Poland, Romania and Hungary, as they respond to the needs of incoming refugees. According to the United Nations, at least 12 million people have fled their homes since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. You can find out more details of our response here.

 

Afghanistan Crisis

In 2021, drought, conflict, high inflation and COVID-19 have gripped the already struggling country forcing even more people to become displaced and hungry. Today, one in three Afghans are experiencing crisis levels of food insecurity. And, with the upcoming winter, these numbers are only expected to rise.

ADRA is helping provide internally displaced people with food and heating so they can survive the Afghan winter.
