Relief and Early Recovery Program

Basic info

In summer and fall 2010, devastating floods struck Pakistan, leaving nearly 2,000 dead, homeless and roughly 20 million affected by loss of property, livelihoods, and access to water and roads. In addition to homes, schools and roads, the floods of 2010 and again in 2011 wiped out crops in the field and seed for future crops, causing extreme food insecurity. Beyond immediate relief with shelter and food, the Relief and Early Recovery Program (RERP) helps remote communities solve this serious problem of food insecurity, and helps people rebuild livelihoods as well.


Program updates
Due to the 2011 monsoon flooding, USAID extended the program in order to  allow medical teams to continue treating patients and to allow AKRSP to rehabilitate additional infrastructure.
