More than 4 million Pakistanis have been homeless for nearly three weeks because of record flooding. The exodus from water-logged areas continues.
People threatened by floods are heading to makeshift camps.
They pile into trucks or travel on foot with their precious livestock.
One woman at a makeshift camp has bigger concerns.
Flood Victim, said, "We faced big problems when the flood water reached our village and ruined everything and left nothing. Then I gave birth to this baby and now I am worried. How will I take care of this baby and my other small children, what will my future be?"
Miles of rice, wheat and sugarcane fields lay submerged under flood waters. At least 1.4 million acres of crops were destroyed in Punjab, the breadbasket of Pakistan. Things are likely to worsen as monsoon rains continue.
More than three weeks after the floods begun, the US, EU, Germany, Britain and Saudi Arabia all announced new pledges of aid. Japan will be sending helicopters to help distribute food, water and medicine.
The Asian Development Bank will redirect 2-billion US dollars of existing and planned loans for reconstruction to the flood ravaged nation.
