Children in Pakistan on coping with the floods

  • 23 September 2011

More than 2.5 million children have been affected by floods in Pakistan.

Heavy monsoon rains have left some areas of the country completely underwater. More than 350 people have died and many others have been left without shelter or clean water.

The children's charity, Unicef, says kids have been the worst hit.

The country was hit by terrible floods in 2010, and so many children were already weak when this year's rains arrived.

The charity is warning they're at risk from diseases such as malaria and diarrhoea, as well as snake bites.

BBC reporter Aleem Maqbool has been to one of the worst affected areas and spoke to 11-year-old Parvati about how she's coping with the floods. Have a look at the clip above.
