CLWR is calling on Canadians to pray for those suffering through the devastating floods in Pakistan, and to give generously in support of the needs of all those affected.
CLWR - together with leading Canadian aid agencies in the Humanitarian Coalition - is appealing for donations to respond to the flooding emergency unfolding in Pakistan. Your gift today will provide life-saving clean water, food, shelter and healthcare to those affected.
The Government of Canada has announced that it will match donations to the Humanitarian Coalition and its member charities up to $3 million.
Since June, Pakistan has experienced three times more rainfall than an average monsoon season. Flooding and landslides have destroyed homes, crops, health centres, roads and bridges. More than 33 million people have been affected and 6.4 million people are in need of emergency assistance. Additionally, there is an elevated risk of malaria, dengue fever and other diseases, and rain is expected to continue through September.
Join churches across Canada in responding to this crisis and use these resources on Sunday morning:
