Pakistan rebuilding flood-hit homes

Communities fear isolation if roads and bridges not reconstructed before winter.

    The worst floods in the history of Pakistan are estimated to have affected more than 20 million people across the country.

    The government estimates that 90 per cent of those displaced by the floods have now returned home.

    The United Nations has given $688m to help Pakistan rebuild after the floods, but in many parts of the country the task of rebuilding has been left to the flood-hit communities themselves.

    With winter fast approaching, thousands people are under pressure to rebuild their villages before the cold weather sets in.
