The terrible flood in Pakistan is getting worse.
More than 1500 people were killed and over 3.2 million people effected by the flood.
Now Punjab is badly hit by the flood.
Water was so high, only treetops and uppermost floors of some buildings were visible in large tracts of Kot Addu and the nearby area of Layyah in the south of the province.
The flood is spreading to other areas in Pakistan too.
And more heavy rains are expected in the next few days.
More rain can cause more flood.
And there are lots of bad germs in the dirty flood water.
The flood victims are facing lots of waterborne diseases such as cholera, diarrhea and skin problems.
A lot of the flood victims don’t have clean water, enough food and medicine to fight the diseases.
More people will die especially the children.
The United Nations said that this is a terrible humanitarian disaster.
I think we should help the flood victims because the situation will get even worse if we do not help them.
