The water came in the middle of the night. It was difficult to escape in the dark. We were holding onto each other and crying.« - &quot;It is good now that we have clean water here again. Since we came back we had to go to the next village to get water, so now it is a little easier. The hygiene training has also been good, and it means that now there is no disease in the village&quot;. &quot;The problem now is that we cannot grow rice or wheat to eat, not even fodder for the animals, as our fields are still flooded. The water is taking a long time to drain away&quot;. - credit photo 'Department for International Development'
17. Punhal, aged 42, from a village near Jacobabad in Pakistan's Sindh province, says, &quot;Before the flood, we were doing ok. We were cultivating wheat and rice, and were able to produce enough to sell some and store enough for the year« - &quot;The water came suddenly without warning. We used to have good houses here, but they were washed away. Now we are living in tents. We tried to save our animals, but we had to sell them to pay for transport to get to safety in Quetta.« - &quot;When we first came back to the village after two months away, there was no clean water, so people were getting sick. Now that we have clean water again thanks to Mercy Corps, it is much better.&quot; &quot;When returned, we had no means to make any money. Until the stagnant water drains away, we can't plant seed again. I'm hoping to get some work on a cash-for-work scheme, so that we can buy some seed.« - credit photo 'Department for International Development'

51. Trees cocooned in spiders webs, an unexpected side effect of the flooding in Sindh, Pakistan An unexpected side-effect of the flooding in parts of Pakistan has been that millions of spiders climbed up into the trees to escape the rising flood waters. Because of the scale of the flooding and the fact that the water has taken so long to recede, many trees have become cocooned in spiders webs. People in this part of Sindh have never seen this phenonemon before - but they also report that there are now less mosquitos than they would expect, given the amoungt of stagnant, standing water that is around. It is thought that the mosquitos are getting caught in the spiders web thus reducing the risk of malaria, which would be one blessing for the people of Sindh, facing so many other hardships after the floods. - Picture: Russell Watkins/Department for International Development
