Washington, Aug 22 (ANI): World Vision Australia chief executive Tim Costello has said that Australians have a "compassion blind spot" when it comes to the Pakistan floods.

World Vision has raised about 785,000 dollars in the three weeks for the Pakistan disaster.

"A humanitarian disaster of this size anywhere else would have had, in my judgment, a much quicker, a much more generous, a much more instinctive response," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Costello, as saying.

Other aid agencies have also alleged that Australia's donation hotlines are silent on the issue.

Pakistan's floods have killed at least 1600 people, leaving around six million people in need of emergency aid. (ANI)
