Pakistan: Recovering from the 2010 floods

In 2010, floods devastated Pakistan on massive scale. IOM provided emergency shelter to 2.76 million individuals and life-saving health services to 120,000 individuals. In addition, IOM completed over 9,000 one room shelters and reached 7 million individuals through humanitarian communications.

Hafeez Mai lost her husband and home when massive floods swept through Pakistan in July 2010, leaving her with four children to care for. This is the story of her resilience in the face of great tragedy.
