Video Blog: Forgotten floods - daily travel, daily trouble

Pakistan's 2011 floods continue, but who is paying attention?

Earlier this week I was in Kasur to produce a news feature on the flood affected areas.

In order to get to the village Mastikhey, which is one of the last border villages, we ended up walking in fields which were submerged by knee to thigh length water.

On our way back, the villagers gave me a ride on a buffalo cart where I learned just a little about the hardships the villagers face on a daily basis.
