standard Aftermath of the 2010 Pakistan floods not over

Despite aid efforts in the past, many victims of the 2010 floods are still homeless over a year after the catastrophe occurred.  According to a report released by the People’s Accountability Commission on Floods, 1.5 million people are still without shelter in districts of the Sindh province that were extremely damaged by the floods.  There are also problems with providing enough resources, such as milk, exposing infants to malnutrition and starvation.  The government of Pakistan ended relief activities on 31 December and are no longer providing food, tents or temporary shelter.

Here are two images of southern Pakistan taken by NASA’s MODIS.  The first image was taken 24 January 2010 and the second on 23 January of this year.
