Pakistan's deadly floods have now affected over six million people, according to the latest estimates from the Provincial Authorities of Baluchistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), and Punjab, in cooperation with the United Nations. "Things will probably get worse, before they start getting better," said Martin Mogwanja, Humanitarian Coordinator in Pakistan. "We are working at full speed to respond to the most urgent needs of the affected populations."
