How to help flood victims – in pictures
As the world faces the threat of another major storm, how to help people affected by the flooding is becoming a hot topic of conversation across the globe.
In the UK, a group of MPs have called for an emergency summit of MPs and peers to decide how to better help the flood-hit regions.
The UK Government is also looking at how to support victims in the aftermath of the storm.
One UK Government spokesman said: “We recognise that some people are left in the dark as to what help is available in the UK.”
He said it was vital to “help people as soon as possible” and urged them to use the internet to find out about aid.
The spokesman said it is vital to support those affected by this storm, but added: “The Government is looking at ways to make sure that people have the information they need to help.”
He urged those who are experiencing financial hardship to contact the charity they have been given the option of helping.
