I’m currently in Sindh province of Pakistan, a bit north of Karachi, looking at the work that’s been done since the flooding of the Indus river a year ago. We’ve been visiting villagers who had to flee from 8-10 feet of water that flowed over their villages, and seeing how Tearfund have been helping them rebuild their homes and livelihoods since then. I’m loving being in Pakistan – there’s a great team working for Tearfund here, the heat is hot, but just in a very sweaty sort of a way, and the foods been fantastic. And more importantly, we’ve really seen lives changed and people helped – fantastic. A really positive programme to visit.
The pictures and stories are gradually going up on the Tearfund website (there’s one here and here), and I’ll post a gallery of images once I’ve been back in the UK for a few weeks, and Tearfund have had a chance to use them themselves. But here, slightly sideways are two images that aren’t really to do with the main story:

There’ll be more, but maybe not for a day or two…
