Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Fund 2022

Following disastrous flooding in significant areas of the country, the Pakistani government established the Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Fund 2022. Last month, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif launched this relief effort to assist flood victims.

He had asked people to donate to the Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Fund. Contributions for financial donations can arrive from both local and foreign channels.

The Fund is handled by the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), and its records are kept by the Accountant General of Pakistan.

To maintain transparency, Pakistan’s Prime Minister said on 3 September 2022 that the Accountant General of Pakistan Revenues (AGPR) and a private auditing company will audit the Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Fund.

Contributors have several choices for sending a donation to the Fund. Pakistan’s State Bank has launched the “Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Fund Account, 2022”.

All mainstream and microfinance banks have likewise done so. They accept cash, paychecks, pay orders, and demand drafts at all of their outlets around the country.
