It is now six months since the devastating floods in Pakistan. Since then, Concern Worldwide has helped one million people who were affected by this disaster.

Six months after the devastating floods in Pakistan, press officer Joop Koopman reports on Concern Worldwide’s health programme in the country.

A vital part of Concern Worldwide’s work in Pakistan is thanks to our local network of partners. 

I visited Pakistan to report on Concern Worldwide's emergency response to the massive flooding there. It left an area the size of Italy underwater.

India is home to one in seven HIV cases worldwide. This year, we’ve been commemorating World AIDS Day in India by raising awareness of the issues around AIDS and HIV and promoting human rights.

Charsadda has been turned upside down by the floods. Village upon village has simply been wiped away. So far, in this district, Concern Worldwide has distributed basic household items and hygiene kits to 19,880 people.

Nothing in living memory compares to the floods that hit Pakistan in the last days of July this year. Concern’s emergency team responded straight away, and this video shows some of ways we have helped so far.

I travelled to Shikarpur, in the Sindh Province of southern Pakistan. I travelled along the main road; all that lay ahead was water, under which entire villages lie – completely submerged, completely destroyed.

I recently visited Charsadda, one of the areas worst affected by the floods in Pakistan.

Dominic Crowley, Cormac Staunton, and Jennifer O'Gorman were interviewed for the Pat Kenny show on RTE Radio 1 last week. They talked about Concern’s use of technology, explaining the role it plays in making humanitarian work more efficient.
