Summer in Pakistan

In Pakistan usually summer starts in May and finishes in the beginning of September, but from last few years this cycle is disturbed due to global climate change.  This year the summer started in April and it was on its peak in June & July when temperature touched 50 degree Celsius.

The weather becomes almost unbearable in June-July and people are more vulnerable to sunstroke, diarrhea and other problem specially the people who works under the direct sunlight.

People who can afford to buy air conditioners and other equipments; they use it to reduce the intensity of hot weather. But People in the rural areas where poverty is higher than the urban areas can’t afford it, thus they go to rivers and canals for swimming in the hot weather. Women at home are more vulnerable who can’t visit those places because of culture.
