It is very hard to know where to begin – the challenges are enormous, and the tasks seem so monumental that sometimes, all responses seem futile, not big enough or meaningful enough!
Is this you with Flood Relief in Pakistan?
We’re here to help. It is good to start from the beginning when we are lost. And taking up that thread, ask yourself this question – what is the first thing you might need if you’re displaced? Yes, a home would be a good place to start! Hence the Code for Pakistan initiative is a silver lining in some very dark clouds.
Here is why flood impacted families might benefit.
Code for Pakistan is an initiative that uses crowd sourced data to highlight where there is a need for relief efforts. Thye provide crowd sourced data through Floodlight – Crowdsourcing the flood-related data from the 2022 Floods in Pakistan.
The organization elaborates:
A tent is not a home. But it is the first step to rehabilitation for those who’ve lost everything else to the destructive waves of the floods.
