Devastating floods have hit Pakistan; with so much land submerged, 6 million people urgently need help. People from Baluchistan to Sindh have been left homeless and exposed to the elements, with further rains expected. The poor and needy are at the mercy of mosquitoes leading to the spread of Dengue and Malaria, both life-threatening conditions.
Aid agencies work in challenging conditions to meet people’s basic needs such as food, clean water and shelter. The Pakistani government has called for international assistance to provide humanitarian aid.

Has decided to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise £30K vital funds for Pakistan Floods.
Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the African continent at 5895m. Its snow-capped summit rises high above the dusty African plains; huge permanent glaciers flow down from the summit, spectacular views and beautiful ice formations push your physical and mental limits.
Please support these five brave doctors to raise £30K for Pakistan Floods to provide Medical Camps, Clean Water and Food. Your support is crucial in this very challenging but rewarding fundraiser.
Please note that 100% of the funds will go towards supporting the flood victims in Pakistan.
We will be taking you through the journey of their attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro over the next few days. We pray for their success in this endeavour.
