Help Children Recover from the Pakistan Floods
Pakistan is in crisis from the destruction caused by historic flooding. Millions of children have lost their homes, and the lingering floodwaters are threatening outbreaks of waterborne diseases.

As conditions stabilize, we will help open the doors of damaged schools so children can safely return and pursue their education.
