You have probably all seen the coverage of the devastating effects of the floods in Pakistan caused by extra heavy rainfalls. At least 1,600 people have died and around 14 million people are thought to have been affected, of which 1 million are likely to be older people.  

Age UK is working with its sister organisation, HelpAge International, to respond to the most vulnerable older people and their families in Nowshera district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, one of the worst affected districts. They are working with Merlin, a medical aid charity, to provide vital support with dry food rations, non-food items such as torches and water containers, medicines, mobility aids and psycho-social care.
