Prior Assistance in Pakistan

Crisis Response in Pakistan 

Crisis Response in Pakistan

ERDO has worked alongside trusted partners in response to need in Pakistan for several years.  In 2011, we provided shelter, sanitation and water for 2,000 families in conjunction with Canadian Churches in Action. That effort was in response to major flooding.  In 2010, we helped provide temporary shelter, sanitation and water for 500 families

In times of emergency, relief supplies can include things like:

  • locally accessed and appropriate food relief
  • child safety
  • water
  • shelter
  • sanitation
  • household needs
  • livelihood protection
