POB Trust activities regarding flood

Dear Brother/Sister,

Activities regarding flood
Pakistan faced the worst monsoon-related floods of its history in 2010. Large parts of the country were devastated by unusually heavy rainfall, caused rivers to overflow their banks and flash floods in low-lying areas. According to the UN, the floods had affected 20 million people, ravaged at least 62,000 square miles of land, wiped out 5 million acres of crops, damaged or destroyed almost 1.9 million homes, and left at least 10 million people without shelter. Water levels have now subsided or stabilized in most of the country. The most urgent problems were included lack of clean drinking water, food, shelter and the threat of widespread disease outbreaks.
