About the Crisis in Pakistan
More than 1,200 people in Pakistan have been killed and there is widespread destruction of homes, roads, schools, health facilities, other infrastructure, and loss of livestock. Entire villages have been swept away. People are living out in the open with basic sheets over their heads and access to latrines is very limited. CARE is very concerned about the outbreak of waterborne diseases including diarrhea and cholera, which will make the already dire situation even worse.
