A young girl walks across a makeshift path through stagnant flood-water in Sindh province, Pakistan.
Even though the flood waters are now slowly receding in parts of Sindh, many communities are still relatively cut-off from main roads and access routes. People are returning to what is left of their homes as soon as the waters have receded sufficiently for them to do so, but in many cases, they find houses that have been badly damaged, if not washed away completely. Fields and agricultural land are also still badly flooded, preventing people from restarting work; this part of Sindh is predominantly agricultural, and the only form of employment for most people is to work on the farms growing rice and other crops.
