The Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC), an umbrella organisation for 13 humanitarian agencies, has launched an appeal to help those affected by the floods in Pakistan.

So far, more than 1,600 people are believed to have been killed by the floods in Pakistan. In total, roughly 20 million people are thought to have been affected.

DEC chief executive Brendan Gormley said: “These floods have destroyed the lives of thousands of families, washing away entire villages and leaving millions of survivors suffering with little food or shelter.

“DEC member agencies and their partners are responding but with roads and bridges damaged the challenges we face are considerable. We urgently need the public’s help to save more lives.”

The British public has so far donated £19 million to the DEC appeal.
