Assistance for Pakistan

The World Bank has announced a $1.60 billion grant for flood victims in Pakistan. As a result of the horrible climatic changes that are consuming the earth, Pakistan was forced to deal with a devastating flood during the monsoon season this year. Pakistan is a developing country, and the biggest flood in recorded history struck destruction everywhere. Nearly 30 million people were uprooted and forced to live in the open air in Sindh alone. Last year, during the COP 27 meeting in Egypt, it was agreed to establish a special fund to compensate countries harmed by global climate change, thanks to the efforts of the current government, particularly the prime minister and the minister of foreign affairs. The creation of this fund is a good thing. The flood’s damage has been estimated at $35 billion, and Pakistan, as a developing country, cannot deal with this issue alone, nor can affluent countries if they are affected by these climate changes. If they help, they will not do any good because the natural disasters that the world is suffering are caused by the same affluent countries. Furthermore, countries affected by climate change, particularly Pakistan, will be required to take steps to assist prevent a massive human tragedy.
