At least 1,100 people have died in two months of torrential monsoon rains.
Although monsoon rains are an annual occurrence in Pakistan, this year’s flood caused the most devastating floods in most people’s memory.
Some provinces have received five times more rainfall than average since June. The climate change minister has called it a “climate-driven humanitarian disaster of monumental proportions”.
More than 1,100 people have died and hundreds of thousands have lost their homes.
