The UN is strengthening its efforts to deliver aid to flood victims in Pakistan.

The floods have left about 6 million people homeless, and are expected to begin draining into the Arabian Sea over the next few days.

Local charities, the Pakistani army, and international agencies are all providing food, water, medicine, and shelter to the displaced, but millions have yet to receive this help.

The head of the UN's refugee affairs, in Peshawar, says many people STILL facing inundation. He adds, that humanitarian organizations have been trying desperately to reach them.
