Considering the severe impacts of the devastating 2010 flood in Pakistan, Social Assistance was included as a priority area in 2010 under the Ambassadors’ Fund to provide emergency relief to the flood stricken communities in Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan, and Gilgit Baltistan. Extensive relief services were provided to help local communities address their immediate post-emergency needs for food, shelter and livelihood in the flood-hit areas. This is an exclusive Ambassador’s Fund thematic area.
USAID/Pakistan has, in cooperation with the USAID Office of Inspector General, established the Anti-Fraud Hotline to provide an avenue for the reporting of fraud, waste, and abuse which may be associated with USAID funded projects in Pakistan. Complaints are handled with complete confidentiality and individuals are encouraged to report when corruption, fraud, waste or abuse may exist in the USAID/Pakistan projects. Reports can be filed anonymously via the easy-to-use Hotline (Toll free number 0800 84700); e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org; fax at 021-35390410; postal address at 5-C, 2nd Floor Khayban-e-Ittehad, Phase VII, DHA, Karachi, Pakistan; and on the website www.anti-fraudhotline.com.
