Crisis in Pakistan

Following is the mail I got from UNICEF:


Dear Karthik,



The images from Pakistan are gut-wrenching.


Devastating floods last weekend ravaged homes and crops. 1,400 are already confirmed dead. More than 1 million children are in desperate need of emergency assistance.


UNICEF has mobilized all available resources in the region – distributing hygiene kits and high-energy protein biscuits, repairing tube wells, and setting up medical camps. But with many areas still inaccessible, the needs will only grow in the coming days.


Please donate now and help support relief efforts in Pakistan.


With gratitude,


Caryl M. Stern

Dear Karthik,



The news from Pakistan continues to develop by the hour. As more information becomes available, we will share details with you. Visit FieldNotes for the latest images and updates from our field staff there.


In other news, UNICEF is working to end the practice of child marriage. Marriage often marks the end of a girl’s education and the beginning of increased health risks, largely due to complications from early pregnancy.


In Senegal, UNICEF has worked for years to open a dialog on social and health issues with community leaders. Thanks to these efforts, more than 4,000 communities in Senegal have declared their abandonment of child marriage.


Thank you for all you do.
