Almost 5 million are estimated to still be homeless in Pakistan as a result of the recent flooding.

No one is sure of the exact number of displaced, but the United Nations estimates that more than 4.3 million people have been affected and more than 181,000 homes destroyed in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province alone.
