New opportunities for Pakistani flood victims

Pakistanis forced out of their homes by floods learn skills that have helped increase their incomes.

    It is a year since Pakistan was hit by one the worst floods in its history.
       
    Hundreds lost their lives and more than 1.8 million homes were either damaged or destroyed.  

    Many are still struggling to rebuild their lives. 

    But for some, the disaster has provided new opportunities, as Imtiaz Tyab reports from Kalora Goth, in the Pakistani province of Sindh.
