The United Nations has urged governments and people around the world to open their wallets to help the 20 million flood victims in Pakistan, who are in desperate need of food, shelter and clean water.
The world comes together to help flood ravaged Pakistan.
At a hurriedly called meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said donors had given only half of the 460 million US dollars the UN appealed for to provide vital supplies over the next three months.
He said all the money was urgently needed now - and much more would be needed to rebuild Pakistan.
Ban Ki-Moon, US Secretary General, said, "Your pledges today must be followed up with action, action that delivers change on the ground and when the waters finally recede, recovery and reconstruction must begin."
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that the United States, already the biggest donor, would contribute an additional 60 million US dollars, bringing its total to more than 150 million.
Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said China had increased its cash assistance, supplied relief goods and taken responsibility for providing food, water and shelter to some 27-thousand people in an inaccessible area in the country's north.
However, the devastating disaster has attracted donations far short of expectations.
Qureshi said Pakistan was facing one of its greatest challenges - tens of thousands of villages have been submerged, around 1,500 people have been killed, and more than 20 million lives have been affected. He said his country desperately needed international help because its own resources were insufficient.
