This report was filed by the International Fund for Animal Welfareâ€™s Michael Booth, Emergency Relief communications officer who is working with the Pakistani Government, the United Nations and regional relief organizations on the ground.
IFAW is rushing aid to the animal survivors of the devastating floods in Pakistan, which some officials are calling the worst in the countyâ€™s history. We are reaching out to groups and individuals that are helping animals in crisis during this disaster.
We are beginning the process of granting monies for distribution to local agencies, including the RAVI Foundation, to help feed animals, to support assessment operations in Punjab province, and to contact relevant authorities on behalf of IFAW.
Official requests for support have come in from the provincial level and we expect a federal-level request in the next few days. Stay tuned for updates on this incident as we continue our work to provide relief to the animal victims of this disaster.
