More than 1,100 people have died in the devastating floods in Pakistan over the past two weeks.

“My thoughts are with the millions of people affected by the devastating floods in Pakistan,” wrote Federal President Ignazio Cassis on Twitter on Tuesday. Switzerland is sending a team to support humanitarian aid in cooperation with the Swiss embassy on site.

According to a statement from the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA), the need is urgent. The team will carry out initial clarifications for on-site assistance.

Switzerland is directing financial aid to the UN emergency aid fund (five million francs) and the fund of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (three million francs). These organizations have decided on emergency aid measures of 3 million and 0.5 million US dollars respectively.
