Hollywood star and humanitarian Angelina Jolie has said the flood disaster in Pakistan should be a ‘wake-up call’ to the world on climate change, calling for more international help after meeting the victims.

Pakistan has been lashed by unprecedented monsoon rains that flooded a third of the country – an area the size of the United Kingdom – and killed nearly 1,600 people, according to the latest government figures.

More than seven million people have been displaced, many living in makeshift tents with no protection against mosquitoes and often with little access to clean drinking water or washing facilities.

“I’ve never seen anything like this,” Jolie, who has previously visited Pakistan to meet victims of devastating floods in 2010 and a deadly earthquake in 2005, said in footage released Thursday.

“I’m absolutely with you in pushing the international community to do more… I think this is a real wake-up call to the world about where we are,” she told a meeting of civilians and military officials in the capital Islamabad.

‘Climate change is not only real, and it is not only coming, it is very much here.’

The UN has warned of a ‘second disaster’ from diseases such as dengue, malaria, cholera and diarrhea as well as malnutrition.

“I’ve talked to people and thought if enough help doesn’t come, they’re not going to be here for the next few weeks, they’re not going to make it,” Jolie said.

Scientists have linked the record monsoon rains to climate change.
