Pakistan floods - one year on

Sep 22, 2011, 03:59 PM, Loralai, Balochistan, Pakistan

In 2010, around 20 million people were affected by the horrific floods of the July/August monsoon season. At the time, 11 million people were made homeless, and an area the size of England was submerged under water. Through its partner Church World Service-Pakistan/Afghanistan (CWS-P/A), Christian Aid responded to the needs of 140,000 people in the twelve months after the floods. In this podcast Marvin Parvez - the director of CWS-P/A - speaks to Communications Officer Susan Barry about the challenges of working in this complex country, dealing with issues including increased levels of poverty and security threats.
