A family loses everything to the Pakistan floods

STORY: Traveling in a boat to where his home once stood, Ghulam Nabi Solangi looks across the vast expanse of water resembling the sea with a feeling of disbelief and hopelessness.

The floodwaters swept across the town of Johi in Pakistan's southern Sindh province on late last week washing away his village located in the outskirts.

Solangi used to run a small grocery store and lived with 15 other family members in a sprawling brick house. The unprecedented floods have forced the family to take shelter in a local school in town which has been converted into a camp for approximately 200 displaced people.

Now, Solangi's family live day-to-day, unsure when their next meal will be. Record monsoon rains and melting glaciers have brought floods that have affected 33 million people, according to Pakistan's National Disaster Management Agency.
