The devastation brought about by the monsoon floods has left millions displaced without food, clean drinking water, and shelter in Pakistan. After the massive destruction in several areas of Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the floods inundated major districts of the Sindh province. More than 14 million people in the province have been affected by the disaster and 511 have lost their lives.
Abdul Rasheed, a resident of the Thatta district says that ‘the water seeped in the houses at night when the people were still sleeping.’ Families in Sindh have lost their homes and livelihoods. Villages that were at a lower level than the road are submerged under 10 feet of water and boats are the only means of transport now.
