SITUATION ON THE GROUND
Recent extreme weather events have spread across Balochistan, Sindh, and KPK regions of Pakistan. Pakistan received 60% of its monsoon season rain in just three weeks. Hundreds are injured, and the death toll stands at over 1000 people.
Remote communities are now struggling to access critical healthcare services and food supplies due to washed-out roads.
Over 1,000,000 homes have been destroyed. These families have no clothes, food, shelter, or access to medical care.
HCI will provide emergency assistance to families across Balochistan, Sindh, and KPK.
The most vulnerable families with children, the elderly, and disabled members will receive food baskets with basic pantry staples to provide nutrition and a means of survival.
Drinking water will also be provided in addition to one large family-sized tent for 6-7 people.
Lend your support now. The people of Pakistan, are counting on us for survival.

PAKISTAN FLOOD APPEAL
GIVE NOW & SAVE LIVES
In any emergency situation, HCI follows these steps:
- Conduct a needs assessment which will determine the extent of the disaster, what the people affected need in the short and long term, and who exactly HCI can help.
- Begin the first phase of relief titled Emergency Relief, which is the provision of basic necessities, such as food and water, hygiene items, andtemporary/transitional shelter setups (e.g. tents). In this phase we also provide basic health assistance through the provision of medical supplies and/or medicine.
- Begin the second phase of relief titled Early Recovery, which involves (re)building of permanent housing and providing cash assistance so that families can return to their homes, and children can return to school.
- Begin the third phase of relief titled Community Development, which involves investing in restoring health systems, providing psychosocial support and trauma relief, and working with the community to rebuild infrastructure and social systems.
In general, HCI’s admin fee on an annual basis is 10-15%. In emergency crisis situations, we may declare 0% admin.
No we cannot do this. We also cannot accept a list of people to help. This is against CRA rules and regulations for how a charity should operate.
We first begin with our needs assessment and start phase one as quickly as possible. Funds are sent based on the reports we receive from the ground. Our intention is not to hold on to funds, but rather to make sure that before they are sent, there is a proper plan for distribution in place. For this reason, we cannot give an exact timeline, but we try to get the funds out as soon as possible.
We believe in working hand in hand with the local community. For this reason, we may often rely on the expertise of a local NGO to conduct the needs assessment, provide us with feedback, and carry out the distribution on our behalf. These are NGO’s that are well established and have a track record for implementing humanitarian aid projects.
HCI regularly publishes impact reports and provides them to the public. Also, donors to a specific campaign are sent these reports directly once they’re made available. You can visit humanconcern.org/reports for reports on Ramadan, Qurbani, Winter relief, and other emergencies.
