GHAZ GHAT, PAKISTAN - JULY 27: Labourers work to construct a new bridge, at the site of a bridge destroyed in last year's floods, on July 27, 2011 in the village of Ghaz Ghat, near Muzaffargarh, Pakistan. A year ago, monsoon rains caused flooding which ravaged Pakistan causing the worst natural disaster since its inception in 1947. Flood waters submerged a fifth of the countryside, equivalent to the size of England, affecting over 20 million people, displacing over 4 million and killing 2000. Millions lost their homes, farms and livelihoods but the crisis still continues as hundreds of thousands of people still remain homeless. Malnutrition rates in some districts are on a par with some African countries. Some 800,000 families lack permanent shelter and more than a million people require food aid, according to Oxfam. Families are struggling to rebuild their homes, as the cost of bricks has doubled in most areas and quadrupled in others. For many, the impact of the disaster will continue to be felt for years to come. (Photo by Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images) less
