11:04 am
a village roz, a county country, i should say, director for the charity care international in pakistan. adults, roz, pakistan has called for international help. no surprise. when you look at the images that we've been seeing for the past few hours, what's needed most. so like, i mean, if you see the damages which has happened approximately 33000000 people are distracted out of that, which is a huge population. and it does in all across the country, baluchistan and st. volunteers are hard it and then j, b, k, and southern but job is equally hit also by the, by the flood. at this stage, shelter is the most needed, which is temporary shelter for these people who have been affected. items like minister hygiene kids for women and girls that don't require clean water supplies
11:05 am
are needed at different level food and non food items specially make cooking boards . mosquito moves and then sleeping bags and other essential items as part of the non food item kits are quite short, both in the shape of cooked and then cooked meals are needed at the sea level. and then uh, i think, to be honest, it's not an emergency when it will end with the life sitting support which will happen at the initial stage. it would require a lot of support in early recovery towards the long term development plan. what i'm hearing is all the basic things one needs for basic subsistence. but what are the kinds of stories the challenges you're hearing most often from, from individual pakistanis. when you speak with the people who have been affected from this flood, you ladies see that dead and dead houses are damaged,
11:06 am
they don't have a shelter, they are living under the sky and the flooding, andrade sin continues to be honest. like the situation is becoming worse and worse every day. and the veins haven't stout of the prediction since it will rain a couple of more days and more water is coming. so let me ask you this. um, you know, i'm going to interrupt just by asking you this because you made it very clear for me. how critical is the situation right now? in other words, how long can you wait for help before things become even more dire? everything is required to be on this today. if you don't have to did, there will be more and more challenges will be facing incoming this to come. so international help is required from now and all the aid workers odd and the fee level responding to this m as in c, along with the gum until arkansas. so the support is to be honest, required. now. now, if he, if he already made for the a long time will be late for this response. so we really need to think of up to date rather than to model today rather than tomorrow. that is
11:07 am
a bill sheranda country director for care international in pakistan. many thank sir . thank you so much. the un says millions of tons of grain still need to be cleared from ukrainian silos to make room for the new harvest shipments resume through the black sea. earlier this month after deal brokered by turkey lifted a russian blockade. the flow of grain has helped ease food prices, but exports so far are down by half compared to the same period last year. the w's mathias bellinger is in ki. i asked him earlier, why it's proving so difficult to get the grain out of ukraine. look, the deal for sees that ships that will say will sail into the ukranian pause, get loaded, and then leave the ports again and or before the war. there were like something like 5 ships per day. that's that we're leaving these 3 ports or plus they also
11:08 am
ports. they're not operating right now. like the port of mc alive until now. this number, which is the target has not been reached because there were not enough ships ready to salen, not enough ships at we understand that. done that on saturday, ukraine's cabinet approved new measures to make the process easier. what exactly did they decide? well, it's not exactly that they approve new measures to make the process easy, but there's the hope that the new measures they introduced will have an impact. basically, they introduced new rules for men, a bought band from leaving the country since the beginning of the war, due to potential tribute mobilization. so men between 18 and 60 cannot leave ukraine, and the government has approved new rules for the men who need to travel on business for business purposes. and these include a sailors. so the hope is that if ships have difficulty finding a crew to sailing,
11:09 am
that ukrainian sailors would be more ready to sail in. but the problem is we also need the ships and that is also the problem of insurance, which is of course, very costly because they're sailing into a war zone. and despite all the guarantees. so it's apartment measure that could potentially ease, but it's probably not the solution to the problem the company solution. but francis is in the central italian town of l'aquila on a closely watch visit. as part of his trip, he got to look for himself at reconstruction worth following. the 2009 earthquake with badly damaged many of the regions buildings. the main event on the pope's itinerary was celebrating mass at a pilgrimage, returned the visit to lakila, comes a day after francis appointed 20 new cardinals. many of whom say one to many of whom one day may choose his successor to sham was of 80. for more, i'm joined now here in the studio by d. w. religious affairs correspondent martin gac morton. tell us more about why
11:10 am
pope francis is in la colette today. and what we understand might be some symbolism around his itinerary. the facial reason, of course, is pilgrimage to replace that is of importance another so so essentially go here and with the general position of the church in relation to reconstruction and you know, being near those who suffered. so like we suffered a massively devastating earthquake in 2009 and the pope is know they're in part to mid victims, etc. who are like really so. so the place where one of the only popes that ever really rumors is important to to underscore. no proof to that. yesterday pope frances named 20 new cardinals. what does their appointment signal, perhaps about the future or the direction of the church? it is quite a remarkable thing, the concert story that took place yesterday, and there are 2 meetings expected for the next 2 days, in which cardinals, among them, new cardinals will be meeting each other,
11:11 am
some of them for the very 1st time, des pointman to really bring seen people from very, very unusual places. so for instance, my now's in brazil will get its 1st guardian all that go or that has been in the church for about 450 years. it's about to get its 1st cardinal. and interestingly, in india, which has almost an overwhelming majority of got the links who belong to the dallas to dallas population have very, very few ballots in positions of power. in fact, no dilute has been made. guardian cardinal. paula. and it is understood that this people will play a pretty significant role in the next conclave, among our things. because the old timers inside the cardinal school are coming to age i over 80, and they will no longer be illegible to choose an exposure. so there is really a shift in the configuration of the group that will choose to expose it. it's not
11:12 am
really to be supposed that that will happen before all of the pieces are in place. i mean, i think that this is something that it's really quite important to understand about this vatican. an inclusive church that is al norton, gac many, many thanks. martin. you're welcome. temperatures in europe's highest mountains have risen by nearly 2 degrees celsius and the past 120 years, almost double the global average that's led to rapidly receding glaciers in the alps. one of the stark is reminders of climate change. glaciers of course, are a major source of fresh water and help keep whole ecosystems in balance. alpine farmer and blast nick has been on glance at him for more than 70 years. he can see and feel just how radically climate change is affecting the austrian alps. assignment the glades, yes, have drastically shrunk, particularly on the surface of the overflow. there are very deep crevices
11:13 am
everywhere and the i sip and hardly any snow knee. any one visiting austria is most famous glacier this year will be shocked. there are few places that show just how dramatically the glaciers are currently melting, like the pest outside glacier. beneath austria's highest mountain, the gross clock, no. i the heat sevilla with one heat wave after another. the rest of the snowfield on the up. a stanza is melting away home and that interrupts the supply of the glacier system. yet i'm within couple. this year there was little fresh, snow and sand blown here from the sahara in the spring created brown spots further speeding up the melting these of a metal. now impossible to stop the change that's happening here in the glaciers have been coming and going over the millennia with ice ages and warmer phases. but this is different. now, there is enormously accelerated warming triggered by climate change. the rising
11:14 am
temperatures are not just destroying the glaciers, like the shot and clays, glacier. they're also dangerous for some animals. speaking to the entire alpine foreigner, the rock tom again, for example, we'll have to shift to higher ground survey. at some point, all these diverse species will be up against the wool, get the want of on. when the ice melts, the risk of falling rocks and mud slips will increase. at zone blick observatory, they measure climate change. here what countries are trying to stop globally is already reality. on average, it's almost 2 degrees warmer fletcher. the glaciers will disappear from the alpine region. here in austria, we have to say dear children, if you have the chance, please go and see the glaciers. now. if you wait too long, they'll be gone. the elves are changing dramatically in the summer, the mountains are brown and less hospitable. for both animals and people. that's
11:15 am
