Once again, the monsoon rains have brought devastating floods to the Sindh valley of Pakistan. In 2010, epic flooding covered an area the size of Italy, killing more than 2,000 people and leaving 11 million homeless.

This year’s floods killed more than 200 people, damaged or destroyed over 1.2 million homes and inundated more than 4.5 million acres. The devastation is less widespread than in 2010, but hundreds of thousands are once again homeless. In September, floodwaters rose throughout the streets in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city.
