Statistics show that since 1950, Pakistan has lost 11,526 lives to floods and that 188,531 villages have been affected due to flood in the country. The frequency of floods has increased in recent years hitting the economically challenged nation hard. A study states that by 2030 nearly 2.7 million people in Pakistan may be affected by floods. An estimated 715,000 people in Pakistan are affected by floods each year resulting in the annual loss of almost 1 per cent to the country’s GDP, which translates into US $2.7 billion.
At least 41 people (which includes women and children) were killed and many others went missing when heavy rain and flash floods hit a remote area in Chitral (Kalash Indigenous People – The non-Christian and non-muslim minority area). Officials said a search was underway for many missing in the area. 82 houses were affected by the waters, and efforts were underway to provide food and relief items to the villagers. Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has directed the National Disaster Management Authority and other concerned departments to step up rescue and relief efforts in the flood-hit areas of Chitral.
Expressing grief and sorrow over the loss of precious lives in the rain and floods, we as team of HLF are determined to take steps to help innocent lives who have lost their homes and loved ones. We are Praying that this flood does not continue any longer as every year it effects millions of lives. We request ministries and organizations to stand with us in this time of need. Last year we helped almost 220 families by providing them the Safe drinking water and Food. We were suppose to help almost 1000 families, but we were able to help little but we are happy that we did something and this time again we want to take a stand. Now is the time we come together and save these lives by covering them in the love of Jesus Christ.

A life not lived for others is not a life. – Mother Theresa
HLF team with the collaboration of Christian ministries visited Rajan Pur, and Layyah in the Tribal Areas of Pakistan to help flood effected people. In Pakistan 1.2 million people who are victims of the flood and they lost their homes, crops and cattle. Many people left the areas and went to other regions of the country, but millions were suffering there. People were surprised that we are among them in the flood to help them, We told them that we are visiting because Jesus told us to help people in order to save their lives. There is forecast that in July-August 2016, floods can again hit the country. We request you to stand with us again to save innocent lives.
