United States President Joe Biden today highlighted floods devastation in Pakistan and urged the world community to help flood-hit Pakistan.

In Pakistan the recent monsoon rains triggered floods across the country and caused massive devastation. More than 1,500 people lost their lives, while thousands of houses and cattle were swept away.

More than 33 millions people have become homeless and are living in the open sky.

Addressing the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Joe Biden has drawn the world’s attention to flood-hit Pakistan.

He said, “Pakistan is still under water and needs help.”

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif was also present in the iconic hall of the General Assembly during Joe Biden’s speech.

PM Shehbaz will also address the UNGA session tomorrow (September 23) with focus on the challenges faced by Pakistan in the wake of the recent climate-induced catastrophic floods in the country.

In his address, US President Joe Biden announced another $2.9 billion for a fund aimed at helping to resolve global food insecurity.

The money “builds on the $6.9 billion in US government assistance to support global food security already committed this year,” said a statement from the White House.
