    Devastating floods have disrupted the lives of millions of people across Pakistan.

    In the northwest of the country, floodwaters have destroyed villages' source of electricity after sweeping away most of the hydroelectric turbines.

    It costs less than $700 to set up a hydroelectric generator, which is vital for irrigating crops and watering animals in these rural remote areas.

    Residents hope that the government or the international community can help them cover the cost of a generator and bring electricity back to their villages.
