The UK has pledged a total of £26.5 million of UK aid to support the flood relief effort in Pakistan. The £1.5 million initial allocation is responding to people's immediate needs. Through our partners in Pakistan, this funding has provided: 16,125 households with multi-purpose cash assistance, 65,403 affected people with medical consultations through mobile medical camps, 33,950 people with water filtration cubes, and 46,752 people with hygiene services. During his recent visit to Pakistan, Lord (Tariq) Ahmad, Minister for South Asia, visited some of Pakistan's worst flood- affected areas, to see the critical role played by UK aid.
