S. Arabia provides $5.39m for IDPs; EU donates 15m Euros for early recovery of flood affected


The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has provided US$ 5,397,300 to the United Nations Development Programme to support the agency relief efforts for the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Pakistan.

On the other hand the European Union (EU) has contributed 15 million Euro (US$ 21.2 million approx.) to support the United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) early recovery work in Pakistan following the floods that devastated large parts of the country. UNDP’s Early Recovery Programme aims at restoring livelihoods through job creation, repairing basic community infrastructure and strengthening local government offices to get public services running again.

It is desperately needed that the world community should come forward to help the poor flood affected people of Pakistan who are at the mercy of the brother countries after the worst floods in the history of this nation hit their areas.
