Pakistani flood survivors already short on food and water have begun the fasting month of Ramadan. Observant Muslims fast from dawn to dusk each day for a month each year to control their desires and show empathy for the poor.
Damage from floods has sent food prices soaring in some parts of Pakistan.
Many survivors are still living in tents.
Inyatullah Khan, Flood Victim, said, "God knows how will we break our fast. Here in this village only a few houses are left, while the rest of the houses are totally destroyed from flood."
Wali Khan, Flood Victim, said, "My entire family made do with a supper of rice last night, but it wasn't enough. We saved some of it for the next morning. We start our fast with water. We have no money and don't know how will we break our fast."
The United Nations launched an emergency appeal for international assistance for Pakistan in the wake of one of the country's worst-ever natural disasters.
On Wednesday, the UN appealed for 460 million dollars to provide immediate help.
