Pakistan flood victims face health problems

Thousands of people have fallen ill while taking shelter in camps set up for flood victims.

    More than 700,000 people have lost their homes in one of the worst floods Pakistan has ever seen.

    Many flood victims staying in camps with no toilets or clean water have fallen ill due to the harsh living conditions.

    Children are suffering from skin rashes and infections, while charity medical centres cannot keep up with the devastation due to their ill-equipped centres.

    Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports from Southern Punjab.
