Flood crisis so severe Deborah Underdown is tasked to stay longer.
THE situation in flood-hit Pakistan is so severe that an East Devon woman, who works for an international aid charity, has had her visit to affected regions extended.
Deborah Underdown, of Gittisham, is visting flooded areas from a base in Islamabad.
Speaking to the Midweek Herald from Pakistan, Miss Underdown said: “My visit has been extended by a week.”
Miss Underdown works for charity Care International, which is desperate to help Pakistan in its hour of need. It is her job to find out how the floods have affected communities and to collect stories about families and individuals who are living through the devastating natural disaster.
