The situation in Pakistan is dramatic. Nearly 1400 people have died, and more than 33 million people have been affected by the worst flood in ten years.

According to Red Cross Norway, more than 1.5 million houses are destroyed and over 700 000 livestock have been lost. Bridges, roads and other infrastructure have also been swept away by the water masses.

Hundreds of thousands of Pakistanis are flocking to emergency camps and solid structures in the affected areas. Red Cross/Red Crescent has established mobile health clinics that are of great help for the many affected. The donation from Jotun will contribute with health care, medicine and clean water.

A part of our Corporate Responsibility strategy is to take responsibility in the areas where we operate, and Jotun wants to contribute economically to aid the emergency situation in Pakistan. By choosing Red Cross/Red Crescent as our partner, we know that the money is spent according to our intention.
