Disasters Emergency Committee Chief Executive Brendan Gormley said:

“Money has continued to pour in over the weekend as more families in the UK realise the extent of the damage done to the lives of ordinary people in Pakistan. We need the money to keep coming because the flood waters are still spreading and the DEC is helping to fund an ever increasing aid effort.
