Samaritan’s Purse is working with our local partners in Pakistan to provide emergency relief to thousands of families devastated by widespread floods. We also now have staff members on the ground overseeing the response.

Thousands of families are receiving critically needed relief after flooding in Pakistan.

Pray for the many people in Pakistan who are suffering in the wake of devastating floods.

Monsoon rains began pounding the country more than three months ago. At one point, one-third of the nation was inundated with floodwaters. Some areas have received five times the normal yearly total of rain. Millions of acres of crops have been affected.

More than 1,500 people have died, with thousands more injured. Nearly 2 million houses have been damaged or destroyed, displacing millions of men, women, and children.

Samaritan’s Purse partners are distributing critical supplies such as food (both cooked and dry), water filtration kits, heavy-duty shelter material, and hygiene kits throughout the hardest-hit areas.

“Millions of people are suffering in Pakistan right now as a result of the worst flooding in decades. But events like this are also an opportunity for the floodgates of God’s love to be poured out and received,” said Jason Martens, Samaritan’s Purse project manager.

More than 30 million people are feeling the impacts of this record-breaking rainfall.

Please pray for our teams and partners as they serve people in need. Pray for hurting families as they rebuild their lives after this historic monsoon season.
