Pakistan braces for rainy season

One year after the worst floods in its history, country remains unprepared as monsoon approaches.

    On the first anniversary of the worst floods in its history, Pakistan remains unprepared as this year's rainy season approaches.

    Hundreds of thousands of people have yet to recover their livelihoods and property, with many saying the government has provided little help with rebuilding.

    This time last year, flooding in Pakistan submerged an area roughly the size of Britain, killing about 20.000 people and making 18 million homesless.
     
    Survivors fear this year's rains could make things worse.
