A family in Kemari, Karachi is barely able to make ends meet as flood waters cause devastation. Monsoon rains have swallowed houses destroying everything near and far.
A young boy is the sole breadwinner of this household upon which 22 other people are dependent. But now, he alone cannot bear the brunt. Since their house has been destroyed, they have shifted to a neighbour's house to sleep at night.
In addition to mammoth destruction of homes, roads and bridges, families like these have no access to clean drinking water, food and health care. As people can be seen wading through contaminated waters, diseases are on the rise. There have been reports of victims suffering from diarrhea, skin ailments and vomiting.
Worried, helpless, and distraught the affected are reliant on support from donors. Though Muslim Hands teams have been on the ground providing clean water, food and health care, the scale of the destruction is widespread, and many more families need help rebuilding their lives.
One third of Pakistan is submerged in water affecting over 30 million people.
