You’ve seen the harrowing images of locals being lifted into helicopters and floods washing away entire villages and destroying two million acres of crop. Thousands of people have lost their lives, and 33 million have been affected. Yet Australia has only pledged 2 million in aid, a number that our guest Aliya Ahmed thinks is appalling. Aliya, a Pakistani-Australian, identifies the groups doing important work on the ground. She also explains why Australia needs to do more.
