Malala Yousufzai Lands in Pakistan To visit flood-Hit Areas

KARACHI: Nobel laureate Malala Yousufzai arrived in Karachi on Tuesday to visit the flood-stricken areas of Pakistan.

Yousufzai is being accompanied by her parents during the trip amid strict security.

Nobel laureate and girls’ education campaigner is visiting the flood-affected areas to raise international awareness regarding the devastation caused by climate change in the South Asian nation.

Pakistan witnessed more than usual monsoon showers this season that sparked countrywide flooding and left a third of the nation underwater, causing damage to standing crops and roads and rail tracks in Sindh and Balochistan.

Yousufzai is expected to extend assistance from the Malala Fund for flood relief.

In the first week of September, the Malala Fund issued an emergency relief grant to the International Rescue Committee (IRC). The IRC will use the funds to provide psychosocial support to girls and women in flood-hit Sindh and Balochistan.
