Guidelines for Humanitarian Relief Assistance for Flood Affectees

In order to streamline procedures for international flood relief assistance, it is advised that all individuals bringing relief goods or intending to setup relief camps may seek prior approval of Ministry of Foreign Affairs, NDMA before their travel to Pakistan.


NDMA has conveyed that for in kind-donations, donors may be advised to observe the following modalities to facilitate disbursement of donations:


  • Sharing of Flight schedule and Flight manifest.

  • Sharing of complete Packing list with details of relief items including their weight

  • Flights carrying relief goods should land preferably at Sukker or Karachi International airports as they are close to the flood hit area.

  • Used items may not be sent as donation.

  • Boxes should be labelled, indicating type, quantity, shelf life and weight of items.

  • Label should be in English language/not in language of origin country.

  • In case of food items, individual family packs would be appreciated rather than mass packages.
