The Floods in Pakistan

The flood waters in Pakistan are still forcing people from their homes. There are millions already who have moved to safe ground or into camps for the displaced. The work to get aid to the needy continues. Ali Abbas Zaidi lives in Islamabad, where he works as an aeronautical engineer. But every weekend like many other Pakistanis, he’s helping deliver that aid. Also, Darryl Montana grew up in New Orleans.  We first met him shortly after Hurricane Katrina. He was mourning his dad and his community. Darryl’s dad Tootie was a well-known master of elaborate Mardi Gras costumes. Tootie died unexpectedly shortly before Katrina hit.
