Arrived in Pakistan. Have never seen so much water on land. Melted glaciers & unprecedented monsoon rains flooded 1/3 of the country. @USAID’s Disaster Assistance Response Team is on the ground supporting government efforts to get food, shelter & medicine to those most impacted. pic.twitter.com/aZ5FFanFxY
