Since the massive floods hit Pakistan in 2010 more than 21,000,000 people have been affected making it one of the worst natural disasters in human history. Nearly 2 million homes have been destroyed leaving over 8 million men, women and children internally displaced and homeless. Over the past months dysentery and other waterborne illnesses have begun to run rampant among refugee communities.
PhotogenX International received a phone call from our friends in Pakistan asking for help. The result has been the creation of Pure Hope Pakistan, a newly formed cooperative NGO dedicated to distributing 100,000 pure water filters to Pakistani flood victims.
