The un-precedent floods in Pakistan in general, and in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in particular, have affected millions of people with a devastating magnitude. Whole villages have been washed away with immense loss to lives and properties. Almost all the infrastructure has been partially or fully destroyed. Roads, bridges, schools, hospitals and other vital communication systems like telephone, mobile phone service grid stations and power supply lines have been destroyed. It will require years of efforts by the government to rebuild what is repairable, but immediately, people are living in relief camps without adequate facilities to survive. There are health and hygiene issues that are further aggravating the situation and threatening peoples' lives.Malakand Division's infrastructure of roads, bridges, schools, and hospitals have already sustained immense damage due to militancy in the area, but the current floods have especially hit Malakand Division and Swat which are one of the most sensitive areas in respect of Global War on Terror (GWOT) and need immediate attention by the the global community in order to avoid any further complications. Similarly, Charsadda, Nowshera, parts of Peshawar and D.I. Khan are other worst hit areas in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
The scarce resources of the provincial government have already drained by diverting it towards security and law and order. Currently, there is not adequate forthcoming to help the people in distress.
I, on behalf of the Awami National Party, appeal individuals within and outside Pakistan, as well as governments and organizations, to come forward and help the affected people. More rains are forecasted and the situation might get worst; therefore, immediate help in cash and kind is direly needed.
