Still submerged, nearly six months on from the initial flooding

Vast tracts of land in Pakistan's Sindh province are still submerged under water, six months on from the extreme monsoon rainfall that forced more than 20 million people from their homes.

 

But aid from the UK government is helping millions of people affected to begin to recover from the disaster. The Department for International Development has helped co-ordinate the UK's response. We are working with the government of Pakistan, UN agencies and international NGOs to deliver clean drinking water, shelter, food and basic healthcare to people across Pakistan.
