UN revises appeal for Pakistan flood victims to $816m
The UN decided to upscale the humanitarian aid given the dismal health conditions
GENEVA (Dunya News) - Amid the second phase of death and disaster, the United Nations has revised the ‘Flash Appeal’ for Pakistan’s flood victims from $160 million to $ 816 million.
The UN decided to upscale the humanitarian aid given the dismal health conditions in the flood-ravaged areas amid fast spreading waterborne diseases such as malaria, dengue and diarrhea.
Julien Harneis, UN Resident Coordinator in Pakistan, warned that the prevailing wave of diseases in the flood-ravaged areas could inflict many more deaths among flood victims particularly the children who are the most vulnerable segment.
