"This is fast becoming one of the most serious humanitarian crises this region has seen in many years", said Martin Faller, deputy regional director for Asia Pacific at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

Save the Children Director Mark Pierce said the situation there was "extremely desperate".

"The sheer volume of water is also making it really hard to access some of the communities most in need, which is one of our greatest challenges right now", Mark Pierce, the agency's director, said. "Once the floodwaters recede, we know that longer-term support will be critical to help communities fully recover, including getting schools re-opened so children can get back to the safety and routine of the classroom, and supporting farmers to get back on their feet".
