Torrential monsoon rains. The Indus and its tributaries overflowing. Dams bursting. Crops washed away. Homes washed away. Animals washed away. People washed away. At least 1700 citizens are already known to have died. Fourteen million people's lives are suffering different degrees of disruption. Electricity supplies interrupted and above all, very ironically, amidst all that mud-coloured flood water, no clean water for drinking or washing. Water borne diseases like cholera are already appearing, ready to inflate the casualty figures exponentially. Poor Pakistan. What a tragedy!

I am sure all other western countries are raising money in support of our fellow earthlings in Pakistan. It's the least we can do.
