In August, heavy monsoons caused flooding in many districts of Sindh, leaving a trail of unprecedented devastation. The gushing water of Bruch’s had washed away the crops, forcing people to move their cattle to safer places.
Thousands of people affected by floods have since been living in emergency shelters in different areas of Sindh.
