Donations to assist relief efforts in Pakistan
Devastating floods in Pakistan have displaced more than 2 million people, and nearly 1,000 people are reported to have died. With bridges, shops and city infrastructure damaged, communities face challenges in accessing help and having the means to rebuild and recover. CRS and partners are providing immediate cash assistance, and plan to expand support to include access to emergency shelter and clean water. Please consider donating today to support these efforts: https://support.crs.org/donate/pakistan-crisis
