PAKISTAN - 09/08/2022 SITREP (LAST 24 HRS)



08 September 2022 LAST 24


The Government of Pakistan has issued an emergency appeal for international aid to provide relief from severe flooding deemed by UN Secretary General António Guterres as a “monsoon on steroids.” The country is facing one of the most destructive flooding events in recent memory. With nearly one-third of Pakistan currently under water, no province has been left unscathed. Approximately 33 million people—one in seven Pakistanis—have been impacted by this catastrophic flooding, leaving over 1,100 dead (including more than 300 children) and $10 billion in damages in a country still reeling from decades of economic turmoil. Aerial Recovery Special Operations Advanced Reconnaissance (SOAR) Team deployed to the region on 31 August 2022 with our partners Global Empowerment Mission (GEM) to perform area reconnaissance, medical assessments and treatments, rescue operations and deliver critically needed aid. The team conducted training, mission planning, equipment preparation and rehearsals until NGO Visas were approved for entry into Pakistan. The SOAR Team arrived in Pakistan on 7 September 2022 and linked up with local contacts.

07:00 PKT: Team Aerial and G.E.M. finish packing and loading G.E.M. humanitarian aid for the day's activities.

10:19 PKT: Team Aerial and G.E.M. departed the Mission Support Site and traveled to their first village to hold a key leader engagement with village elders and develop basic life and medical needs for approximately 2,000 Pakistanis to be delivered ASAP.


10:39 PKT: Team Aerial and G.E.M. treated the following: 1 year-old female girl for dehydration, a 25 year-old male diabetic with a recent amputation, a 3 year-old male with an infected head wound and a 2 year-old female with an infected head wound. Initial overall assessment matches what our Chief Medical Officer briefed us in that antibiotics/medicines are going to be a great need.

12:36 PKT: Team Aerial and G.E.M. delivers 22 boxes of aid and meets with village elders to assess any medical needs. The village has 50+ homes and 90% of all structures at this location are damaged.

13:29 PKT: Team Aerial and G.E.M. to new site and meets with village elders. Most structures are undamaged and there are no medical requests. 53 boxes of aid were delivered.

16:46 PKT: Team Aerial and G.E.M. arrive at third site and perform an initial assessment of the village. There are 70 + multi-family houses damaged by rain here. 73 boxes of aid were delivered to the families.

17:32 PKT: SOAR Team and G.E.M. arrived at fourth site and met with 22 families. 22 boxes of aid were delivered.

18:24 PKT: SOAR Team and G.E.M. arrive at fifth site. We were briefed that 16 houses had been damaged from the heavy rains. Living conditions are unsuitable due to the homes all being surrounded by heavily contaminated water. The SOAR Team waded through 150 meters of chest deep water with volunteers from the village to deliver 30 boxes of aid and performed medical treatment to 8 villagers, 2 of which were under the age of 4. The team advised them that until there is a solution for staying out of the heavily contaminated water, the sickness and infections would continue to get worse.


Aerial SOAR Team and G.E.M. will widen our assessment area to provide medical treatment and aid delivery further from more developed areas, as well as gather key information to perform Search and Rescue Operations as needed. Teams will conduct split team operations in order to facilitate a larger assessment area.
