In late July and early August, 2010, Pakistan was ravaged by the worst floods in its history. Heavy monsoon rains, flash floods and riverine floods combined to create a roiling body of water equal in dimension to the landmass of the United Kingdom.
The floods affected 84 of Pakistan’s 121 districts and more than 20 million people – one-tenth of Pakistan’s population. The floods devastated villages from the Himalayas to the Arabian Sea. More than 1,700 people lost their lives, and at least 1.8 million homes were damaged or destroyed (United Nations, 2010).
