Imagine the entire population of Australia being affected by a natural disaster.
Pakistan is experiencing the worst floods in living memory, and the crisis is deepening as torrential rains continue to fall across the country. An estimated 20 million people have been affected – more than the Indian Ocean tsunami, the Kashmir earthquake and the Haiti earthquake combined. The threat of disease is high.

There is no doubt that the present floods are the worst of their kind in the history. Pakistani nation is bravely fighting this disaster as it had done in the case of fighting terrorism. This time also the nation will come out victorious.
