Of the مل 22 million, 7 700,000 will go to humanitarian organizations in Pakistan, focusing on the safest locals, Afghans, as well as the host community. The co-operation will include Afghans and Pakistanis affected by conflict, displacement, quad 19 and natural disasters, including food shortages.

Pakistan is one of the most devastated countries in the world and often faces a number of disasters such as floods, droughts, heat waves and earthquakes. Both floods and droughts have repeatedly affected the provinces of Sindh and Balochistan.

With limited access to water, sanitation and medical services, high nutritional deficiencies have compromised the health care capabilities of the most vulnerable. The current outbreak of the corona virus has further compounded the current humanitarian needs.
