The Aerial Recovery Special Operations Advanced Reconnaissance(SOAR) Team and our partners, the Global Empowerment Mission (GEM), continue to combine efforts to not just identify, but find solutions to problems associated with the flooding in Pakistan. The teams are focused on the hardest to reach areas where families are isolated or haven chosen to stay cut off due to the need to tend to livestock (water buffalo, cow, donkey and camels), as they are most of the rural people’s livelihoods.

Additional support in the way of other NGO’s on ground, awareness, supplies and donations are greatly needed to help the hundreds of thousands in Pakistan who are in desperate need.
