Thousands homeless as flood waters ravage lands in southern Pakistan

September 15, 2011Pakistan, ISLAMABAD – International aid agency Oxfam is mounting an emergency response to get aid to those affected by fresh flooding in Sindh province in Pakistan. This is the second year of flooding in Pakistan, and many of those affected had not fully recovered from last year’s mega-floods. There is an urgent need to provide immediate and life saving relief to the millions affected. It hasn’t stopped raining in Sindh for the last 10 days. Large swathes of land are underwater and people are desperately awaiting relief. They have lost their crops, homes and livestock for the second time – and been pushed from last year’s disaster to this one,” said Neva Khan, the Country Director of Oxfam in Pakistan, who visited some of the worst affected areas in lower Sindh. Some 5.3 million people are now affected by the floods in Pakistan and the situation is expected to worsen in the coming days. More than 4.2 million acres of land has been flooded and 1.59 million acres of standing crops destroyed in Sindh. –SA News

    We have so much and they have so little. That is speaking materially. So far as surviving goes we are way behind.

    Just watch the man cooking the rice. I want one of those cookers.
