Australia — Aid arrives in Pakistan

The first deliv­ery of AusAID stores for those affect­ed by the recent flood­ing in Pak­istan has arrived by Roy­al Aus­tralian Air Force (RAAF) C‑17A Globe­mas­ter in Islam­abad.

Now that the stores have been unloaded, they will be dis­trib­uted to areas as deter­mined by the Pak­istan Nation­al Dis­as­ter Man­age­ment Authority. 

AusAID spokesper­son Suzanne Edge­combe said the AusAID stores deliv­ered by the ADF will ben­e­fit more than 10,000 fam­i­lies affect­ed by the nat­ur­al disaster. 

“The arrival of much need­ed aid stores to the peo­ple of Pak­istan demon­strates the coor­di­na­tion and com­mit­ment of a num­ber of Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment agen­cies,” Ms Edge­combe said. 

“AusAID will con­tin­ue to liaise with the Pak­istan Gov­ern­ment, UN part­ners, Defence and oth­er key stake­hold­ers with­in Aus­tralia to ensure we pro­vide the most effec­tive response to this disaster.”
