Flooding in southern Pakistan over the past month has inflicted a huge humanitarian and economic toll. Close to 5 million people are affected and traditional donors are pretty much staying away.
Right now, it’s a very bad time to be in Sindh, Pakistan’s southern province. It was hit by devastating floods last year. They’re still rebuilding, and it is already monsoon season again, with new floods coming.
At least 5 million people are affected, nearly 200 people have been killed, 4.2 million acres flooded and 1 million homes destroyed in southern Pakistan. So far, the scale is destruction is not quite as large as last summer's epic floods, but it is nonetheless a humanitarian emergency.
The UN Refugee Agency just posted this video of the continuing struggles of people displaced by Pakistan's epic flooding.
