Pakistan is now in its hour of need

Published 11/08/2010

As people in Pakistan struggle to recover from the catastrophic flooding in many parts of that country, Irish aid agencies are assisting the most vulnerable people.

Over the years, Irish aid agencies have learned valuable lessons in responding to emergencies arising from floods; lessons that should inform this, and future, relief operation.

Dochas - the umbrella organisation of Irish non-governmental organisations (NGOs) - encourages members of the public to learn more about the principles of effective humanitarian aid by logging onto www.How, or by contacting any of the organisations listed on the site for further information.

The people of Pakistan need our help.
