Thousands of families are living with poor hygiene in displacement camps or without clean water or sewage treatment in their flood-damaged homes. VSH Corporation previously delivered on the promise of 45,000L of clean water and continues to contribute to relief efforts.
"Basic hygiene measures can make a huge difference to people's health, and providing people the tools they need to maintain thier dignity and independence during this trying time can really uplift morale of those struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel. These simple items slowly bring a sense of empowerment, instilling in the mindset, an aim & level of hope, that these people will be able to rebuild their lives again." - Founder, VSH Corporation
One-third of Pakistan is currently underwater due to massive flooding. Pakistan has been hit by heavy monsoon rains and melting glaciers. Simply put, Canada's current population is about 38 million; In Pakistan 33 million people have been displaced by apocalyptic floods. Entire multi-story buildings have been washed away...
VSH Corporation has further delivered hygiene packs, including hand soaps, toothbrushes, tooth paste, towels, laundry detergent, shampoos, loofa's and more, to those most affected in the region.
There are 7253 glaciers in Pakistan - more than any other country outside of the polar regions. As a result of increased global temperatures, glaciers are melting at a rate that has never been seen before. The result is a rise in sea levels, which leads to coastal erosion and an increase in storm surge. This is because warming air and ocean temperatures create more frequent and intense coastal storms like hurricanes and typhoons causing massive floods. Climate change has adversely affected Pakistan, making it one of the five most vulnerable countries in the world.
