Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai arrived in Karachi on Tuesday, October 12 to visit the flood-hit areas in Sindh to assure more help to the affected people.

As per a report in Geo News, Yousufzai is being accompanied by her parents during the trip amid strict security.

As an international campaigner for girls’ education, the activist is visiting the flood-affected areas to raise awareness about the devastation brought on by the climate-induced rainfall this year. 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.

The funding will also be used to deliver emergency education services to ensure girls continue their education. The assistance from the Malala Fund will help repair and rehabilitate ten damaged government schools for girls.

She also recently joined Riz Ahmed and team Joyland for a flood relief fundraiser in London as she is now onboard as an executive producer of the film. In an effort to give back to their community, the filmmaker and team turned their shows into a fundraiser for flood victims back home and all of their shows were completely sold out.
