PAKISTAN Church leaders have said the government is doing very little in response to the floods crisis and have renewed their urgent appeals to help the millions affected by the catastrophe. 
The bishops went on to thank charities including Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) which earlier this month rushed through a package of food, medicine and shelter for more than 5,000 families. 
Bishop Samson Shukardin in worst-affected Sindh Province described ACN’s response as “remarkable”.

He said: “We are very grateful to [ACN]. We were not expecting such a good response. It is helping us support people in different ways – food packages, medical camps, tents, repairing houses.”
The Church leaders said many people in the country recognised the Church as a transparent provider of emergency and other vital aid, adding that this help would have been impossible without organisations such as ACN.
The bishops appealed for more food, medicine and tents, saying people had lost everything and that the government had largely failed to meet their basic needs.

ACN Nigeria Appeal 
Nigeria: Your love is helping victims of violence 
The Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus are providing emergency aid for those forced from their homes in Christian-majority villages by bandit attacks - many of whom have watched family members killed. Bishop Peter Okpaleke of Ekwuloba praised the Sisters’ work. He said: “The nuns have risen up to the challenge… They provide humanitarian assistance to those worse affected.” But they can only come to the aid of those driven from their homes thanks to your help. Find out more here.
