Pakistan Flood: Pakistan has always been making its mark at the global level. Be it politics or its sinking economy. Now this time Pakistan is getting its insult done with the money given by America for the flood. Pakistan is accused of not providing flood relief material and money to the affected people. The aid sent by America is becoming a morsel of corruption and loot in Pakistan. Expressing displeasure over this, America has spoken of strict action. US State Department spokesman Ned Price said the US would investigate to make sure its aid reached those affected.

America stood up as a helper for flood-ravaged Pakistan

In June, due to the rain that came as a disaster for Pakistan, there was a severe flood. More than 1700 people died in the floods. At the same time, due to the flood, 3.30 crore people were forced to break their homes and almost a third of the country was submerged by the flood waters. America once again stood as a messiah for Pakistan and sent relief aid to Pakistan to overcome this crisis.

In US $ 56.5 million, only $ 38.5 million was given by Pakistan as relief to the affected.

According to the US State Department, the US has provided about US$56.5 million to Pakistan this year in the form of flood relief and humanitarian aid and an additional US$10 million in food security assistance. According to a UN report, in September, Pakistan and the United Nations launched an initiative on the floods, under which efforts were made to raise US $ 150 million. However, out of this, only $38.5 million in aid could be received.

America’s tax payers money goes in relief material sent to other countries – Price

When asked about corruption and looting of relief materials in Pakistan during Tuesday’s news conference, Price said, “We take it very seriously, not only in Pakistan, but wherever American taxpayers’ money goes around the world.” take.” Price also cited the US government’s accounting practices to ensure that humanitarian aid is being used for the purpose for which it is given. Under this, the employees of ‘USAID’ regularly visit the place where the help is being sent. Apart from this, partners working with local organizations also keep an eye on this.

Our team keeps an eye – US State Department

“We have DART—the Disaster Assistance Response Force—and its members have visited more than 10 flood-affected districts in Balochistan and Sindh provinces,” Price said. Pakistan’s Provincial Disaster Management Authority has said that more than two million homes have been destroyed by the floods. In September, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned that an increase in diseases such as malaria could lead to a “second disaster”. Last week, the WHO warned of 2.7 million malaria cases by January 2023 in 32 flood-hit Pakistan districts.
