Islamic Relief workers in Birmingham prepare aid for Pakistan

Workers with the Islamic Relief organisation have been sorting out clothes to send to Pakistan in the wake of the flooding disaster, at a facility in Birmingham.

Up to two-and-a-half million people have been affected by devastating floods in north-west Pakistan, the International Red Cross has estimated.

Rescuers are struggling to reach 27,000 people still cut off by the floods, whilst at least 1,100 people have died.

Moustafa Osman of Islamic Relief explains how donations can be used most effectively.
