Pakistan Flood Relief
« on: August 24, 2010, 03:15:40 pm »
The 2010 Pakistan floods began in July 2010 after heavy monsoon rains affected the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, lower Punjab as well as parts of Balochistan. It is estimated that two thousand people [2] along with close to a million homes have perished so far.[3] The United Nations estimates over 20 million people are suffering and homeless[4][5] with over 160,000 square kilometers[6] affected as a result of the flooding,[4][5] exceeding the combined total of the affected of 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake. However, the death toll in each of those three disasters was much higher than the number of people killed so far in the floods[5]. Around a fifth of Pakistan's total land area was underwater due to the flooding.[7][8][9]
