In July, MCC launched an urgent appeal to help the victims of the war in Swat Valley, Pakistan. We desperately need to provide emergency supplies of food, clean water, tents and essential medicines, to the 2.5 million people fleeing the fighting. The onset of monsoon rains in July stretched resources even further – increasing the risk of diarrhoea and malaria for the displaced people. Even in spite of this desperate situation, things could actually be a lot worse.
We would be facing a “humanitarian meltdown” were it not for the generosity of Pakistani families and communities of modest means who are looking after the vast majority of these people. The world’s richest nations need to dig much deeper in their pockets to help. Please donate now.
