The United States on Friday announced a disaster aid of USD 1 million in support of Pakistan to address natural disasters, such as the ongoing flooding, according to the US Embassy in Pakistan.

US Ambassador to Pakistan, Donald Blome, announced the grant during a meeting with Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah in Karachi.

The US ambassador said that the humanitarian assistance, funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), will build the resilience of agricultural communities in Sindh Province, and support Pakistan’s disaster management authorities in Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Gilgit-Baltistan provinces to better respond to future disasters.

 Blome asserted that the people of the US stood with the people of Pakistan during the challenging time, adding, “Our hearts are with the families who lost loved ones in the floods across Pakistan and who are also dealing with recovery efforts.”

“We are proud to help build the resilience of Sindh communities so they are better able to face such disasters in the future.

We remain committed to helping Pakistan recover and rebuild as quickly as possible.

” Pakistan has been witnessing heavy rains and floods in parts of its provinces, which have claimed many lives and devastated several homes.
