Pakistan flood crisis in three months

ISLAMABAD: International aid agency Oxfam warned Friday that three months into Pakistan’s unprecedented flood crisis funds were drying up, putting millions at risk with swathes of farmland still under water.

“The crisis is far from over,” said Oxfam’s director in Pakistan, Neva Khan.

“Cases of disease are increasing and large areas remain under water in southern Sindh province,” said Oxfam.

“The funding shortfall is so serious that existing regular food rations to 3.5 million people could be in jeopardy,” Oxfam said.
