The torrential rains has hit Pakistan severely and has cost communities lives, homes, sources of income and livestock in a matter of minutes. According to the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) the death toll has now risen to more than 1,350 people, among which 480 are just young children.
In many affected areas there is not a single house left standing, due to the severity of the floods. Children and families are left to take shelter and rest in the rubbles of where their houses once stood. Lack of food and hygiene undoubtedly will increase the risk and spread of water-borne diseases such as Typhoid and Cholera. The risk for survival is only increasing.
