The people of Pakistan have been dealing with a lot of pain due to this climate calamity. This year’s monsoon rains have left the Asian country in tears, leaving millions homeless and destroying buildings, bridges and roads; everything and everyone is underwater.
The natural disasters, including flash floods and landslides along the Kabul and Indus rivers, have injured more than 1,600 people, and more than 1,000 have lost their lives. The worst-affected area is the southern districts of Balochistan and Sindh. Mountainous regions in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have also been badly hit.
Many countries worldwide have stood up and offered assistance to Pakistan. The rescue operation is underway. The disaster management team and the forces, including the army and navy, of the country, are trying their best to safeguard the general public.
