Pakistan Winter Emergency:
20 million people across Pakistan are homeless this winter.
Winters in Pakistan are getting colder and lasting longer.
The devastating floods of 2022 are one example of how Pakistan faces the brunt of extreme weather caused by climate change, and this winter is set to hit northern regions the hardest with heavy snowfall and temperature drops of up to -14°C.
Children are in extreme danger throughout the winter season. Did you know that 40% of children in Pakistan aged 5 and under have stunted growth due to malnutrition? A whopping 80% of children are not eating enough food to keep them healthy and warm – winter makes these situations even more dire.
Penny Appeal have been providing life-saving humanitarian aid in Pakistan since our conception in 2009. We have been dedicated to supporting communities who suffer from the bitter winter conditions with little resources. This winter season, we need your help to save lives, please donate today and help us provide winter blankets warm clothing, food packs and emergency shelters for Pakistan’s most vulnerable families.
A shocking 95 million people live below the poverty line in Pakistan, many of whom live in dilapidated mud homes without electricity or warm clothing to keep them safe from the bitter cold.
Natural disaster and food insecurity means that for the poor and displaced communities in Pakistan, winter is often a battle for life.
Pakistan holds the unfortunate distinction of having the highest number of homeless people in Asia, with approximately 20 million individuals without a place to call home.
Help families in Pakistan keep warm and safe this winter.
Penny Appeal is poised to make a significant impact on the lives of those affected in Pakistan. With your support, we will:
Provide Warmth and Shelter: Distribute blankets, warm clothing, and emergency shelters to shield vulnerable populations from the biting cold.
Combat Poverty: Implement initiatives to address the root causes of poverty, providing long-term solutions for families in need.
Nourish Children: Support programmes that address childhood malnutrition, ensuring that the youngest members of the community have the nutrition needed to thrive.
Join us in extending a helping hand to the people of Pakistan facing the challenges of winter. Your generosity can bring comfort, protection, and the promise of a brighter tomorrow.
Together, we can ensure that this winter is a season of hope and healing for all.
Penny Appeal will endeavour to use your gift as requested, wherever possible. If for any reason we cannot use your donation as you have indicated, we will use it to fund similar projects in other countries or other projects in the relevant country. Penny Appeal’s strategic overview and on the ground experience means it is in the best position to decide how to meet need as it arises.
