About Pakistan

Save the Children has been working in Pakistan for over 30 years, assisting children and families in the aftermath of emergencies, such as the conflict that forced more than 2 million people from their homes in 2009 and the devastating floods in 2010 that destroyed more than 1 million homes.

Our Work

Ongoing fighting between the Government of Pakistan and armed groups in Khyber Agency (north-west Pakistan) resulted in a mass exodus of families. More than 250,000 people – mainly women and children – fled the area, with many walking for days. Save the Children rapidly assessed the needs on the ground and distributed life-saving and life-sustaining supplies such as shelter kits, and food.

In 2010 the people of Pakistan were hit hard by unrelenting monsoon floods. Save the Children immediately responded to the floods, sending relief workers to Pakistan to help children and families recover from their devastating loss. We implemented programs to provide shelter, medical aid, education, nutrition and other humanitarian relief to the victims of the flood.
