USAID continues to deliver aid to those impacted by the floods. To date, USAID/FFP has provided $51.5 million in direct support of World Food Programme’s monthly food ration distributions and to an NGO to support food voucher distribution.

People in the United States who wish to contribute to the effort are asked to text the word “FLOOD” to 27722. Each text will donate $10 to the Pakistan Relief Fund established by the State Department, helping to provide emergency aid to displaced families.
