Pakistan Floods Children's Appeal

The widespread flooding, which devastated much of Pakistan in July and August, has affected 20.2 million people, 9 million of which are children.

Since then, UNICEF has set up almost 700 temporary learning centers, which have been attended by some 52,000 children.

The charity is providing safe drinking water to 2.6 million people every day, distributing more than 6 million water purification tablets, which translates to 60 million liters of safe water.

UNICEF Australia has raised $5.6 million for the Pakistan Floods Children’s Appeal.
