‘I’ve never seen anything like this and I have been to Pakistan many times,’ she previously shared.

‘I am absolutely with you in pushing the international community to do more. I feel that we say that often… we speak of aid appeals, relief and support but this is something very, very different,’ she added.

She concluded, ‘Push governments to understand that lack of fair trade, rising emissions and failure to address conflicts are causing more death and suffering to millions of families around the world.’ 

 ‘I think this is a real wake-up call to the world about where we are at,’ she told a meeting of civil and military officials in the capital Islamabad.
