MILLIONS of people who lost homes, crops and food stores to the Pakistan floods are facing a winter of hunger unless more money is found. The warning came from International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. They released the statement during a meeting held in Qatari capital Doha, reported BBC on Saturday. The Red Cross has already distributed emergency food parcels for more than 1.3 million people, but with this years crops destroyed and fields in no condition for planting, a second round of aid to provide food for the winter is vital. The emergency is far from over, said David Peppiatt, International Director of British Red Cross. Malnutrition rates have risen to 14 per cent and an estimated 30-50 per cent of children arriving at health facilities have shown symptoms of acute malnutrition. Because of the destruction, people simply have no way to feed themselves - it will be almost a year before many farmers can bring in another harvest. That means people are going to go hungry unless we get help to them, and at the moment we simply dont have the money to do that. The International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) is reporting its $72.5m appeal - designed to support 900,000 people for 18 months - is just 64 per cent covered. In the first week of October alone, a British Red Cross (BRC) logistics team based in Sindh saw food for 90,000 people pass through its warehouse, along its supply chain and into the hands of families left hungry by the floods.
