What do you get if you take some cows, some houses and a big yellow truck?
In July 2010, monsoon rains in Pakistan turned into devastating floods – the worst in living memory. 2,000 people died and 20 million lives were disrupted. Over the last two years, Christian Aid partners (including Church World Service-Pakistan/Afghanistan and Muslim Hands) have carried out a variety of work helping flood-affected communities to rebuild their lives. Neill Garvie, Christian Aid’s Emergency Programme Manager for Pakistan, explains about some of the life-changing emergency response work that we have supported.
