Millions stranded in Pakistan in worst natural disaster to hit the country

WORLD light welterweight champion Amir Khan is backing Save the Children’s fundraising appeal for the Pakistan floods.

The British-Pakistani boxer from Bolton said: “Save the Children are helping the children and families in Pakistan who have been affected by the severe flooding. Their teams are providing critical emergency heath care.

“I hope you will join me in supporting this emergency appeal to help save children’s lives in this devastating situation. Please go to savethechildren.org.uk to find out more and help.”

Record-breaking monsoon rains have triggered deadly floods and mudslides which have left 1,500 people dead and hundreds of thousands of families struggling to survive.

Save the Children – which is one of the only aid agencies able to reach some of the remote northernmost parts of the Swat Valley – has used helicopters, donkeys boats and rafts to deliver doctors and medical supplies to families cut off by the water.
