The worst ever floods in Pakistan have already killed up to 15-hundred people. Now rescue workers are struggling to deliver aid to more than three million others affected by the floods.
Muddy water which broke over river banks in the Punjab on Tuesday, threatened to completely destroy vast stretches of crops. Nearly 2 million people are now short of food. Fresh rains in the northwest are now adding to the misery, threatening to overwhelm a major dam and unleash a new deluge.
The World Health Organization is warning that more than 100-thousand people are at risk of water-borne diseases, and that clean water is urgently needed in the flooded areas.
United Nations agencies and humanitarian partners in the region are providing emergency aid, prioritizing those in the worst affected regions.
