Pakistan’s flood crisis is making the spread of disease a fast increasing problem and hospitals are struggling to cope with the sheer volume of affected people. Women and children, especially newborns, are suffering the most from malnourishment. Al Jazeera’s Jonah Hull reports from northwest Pakistan.
At least 1,600 people have died and 14 million have lost homes or livelihoods. ActionAid is on the ground now, with a massive relief effort. We urgently need donations to supply food, shelter and clean water.
