    Dear Sir/Madam,

    We are fresh graduate, working as NGO for the enhancement of education in our Region Umerkot Sindh, junction of Tharparkar and etc; interior cities and villages, In this region most of population depends on agriculture and since last year we had bad experience of rain fall and flooded our lands, the crops are ruined and houses are damaged and, animal died with diseases and also its effect the conditions of our areas residents.
    Know we are trying to improve the standard of education, if they get standard education they will explore new ways to remove their poverty. And our area becomes educated and understanding level of the peoples grows and they will meet every problem themselves. And omit the problems.
    Hence therefore we look forward for the standard medical facilities in our area, we build the schools, college, university, and trade center (where we educate the different trades which generate more income support to the peoples), and also we start the training center for the girls who will learn and support to their families, increase their income, and moral support side by side their men’s, and Build Hospital where we give them all facilities like Karachi and major cities of Pakistan where we build Operation theater, city scan, and all the medical equipments, where we treat all the diseases as well provide medicines free of cost for the poor peoples , who can’t afford the expense of treatment,
    This is our motto; we needed much your co-operation, cos we can’t change this with your help.
    Looking forward for your kind co-operation.

    All have forgotten rehabilitation phase. I just returned
    from the most affected and the most neglected areas of Noshehra and
    Muzaffar Garh. Children in South Punjab and
    Noshehra are dying due to chest infections. Customs Health Care Society Lahore
    is building 300 homes out of which 150 are near completion. Think of providing one house to the
    shelter less before it is too late. It costs only Rs 160,000 ~ 200,000.

    I say thanx to all the donating ngos and associations as they have done an excellent job for the support to pakistani flood victim. But I want to share reality with you people that is myself is flood victim and a student of PhD AT bzu Multan. Some people having political approach have hijacked these NGOs as its my first experience during these days because we have received nothing from these NGOs. I dont know where this huge collection has gone. My house has destroyed but no one helped me. It does not means at all that I am demanding some thing from some one. Almighty Allah is with us. And time is not very far when all these frad people will be in front of Court of Allah.

  7. Irfan September 21, 2010 at 2:34 pm #

    Thanks. I found a genuine relief organization through your website and donated US$ 13350.00. I never knew that Al-Khidmat has such a large number of volunteers (24000) working with them. It’s amazing to see in these materialistic times. Thanks again.

    Everyone should help our Pakistani brothers and sister in miserable conditions. :(. Sad its very very sad.

    It is the inability of the present PPP lead coalition government to have failed in mobilizing the people as a nation in this time of need. People of Pakistan are going through the worst flood of history are increasingly impatient over a lack of food ,water, shelter and other relief goods, criticizing Pakistan government for mismanagement. The government has failed to live upto the expectations of the people in providing relief. The previous regime did wonders when it not only mobilized everyone but also carried out the relief works successfully when the earthquake stroked.
    During the chaotic situation the nation felt pleasant when PM Gillani met Nawaz sharif . Their joint declaration of setting up a trust worthy and transparent tribunal to look after the flow of flood rehabilitation fund was a very positive move. But it did not prove to be turning point when, later, PM announced that Nawaz sharif’s idea of setting up the tribunal is not practical. This stance clearly showed the true colors of the government. The government, both federal and the provincial, have no insight into handling a disaster in an efficient way. This change in PM Gillani’s stance on the issue of transparency and fair distribution raised many eye brows from every segment of the society. The nation once again realized that after all it’s the turn of PM and his cabinet to follow the presidency’s footstep. PM like always tries to portray his “gentlemen” image but fails to do so. It is very unfortunate for the nation that the government has placed an additional authority over the already controversial NDMA just to monitor the flow of funds. That’s the same organization which the government was cursing after the famous trip of PM Gillani to the fake medical camp at Mianwali.

    No doubt , the international community is willing to help us. W must be thankful to Saudi Arabia that has risen up to the occasion. Saudi Kingdom has really gone an extra mile with its effort for the flood victims of Pakistan. On the other hand UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon visit was highly commendable as it projected the entire episode in front of the international community. In addition to this we must be thankful to every state which came to our help in this time of need but the way our political forces have behaved so far, they must be thinking twice before lending a hand to us again. Nobody believes the money will get to those who need.
    Today the world knows Pakistan as a country with excessive corruption and pathetic under-performance of the state institutions. The world wonders what type democracy Pakistan has. Unfortunately the state is captured by small band of political elite which has the control over the resources of the country. Meanwhile I would say that the second so-called major party namely PML (N) is no different from the ruling party PPP. These two parties have looted the wealth for decades. As long as these two corrupt parties keep playing the musical chair game of power with the nation, one must not hope for any improvement to the lives of the people of this country. May Allah bless us and keep our country away from all perils.

    Dear Friends:
    HOPE Foundation is non-governmental, non-political and not-for-profit NGO. We have distributed food & non-food items among 400 families of KPK and our target is to facilitate more than 5000 families.
    HOPE Foundation has established medical camps with local partner NGOs in northern areas to reduce sufferings of people in flood-affected areas. Medical camps have been established in Nowshera, Peshawar and Charsadda.
    Once the relief phase is over HOPE Foundation plans to work for economic and social rehabilitation of affected communities. But before that we are planning to take complete charge of a few camps and manage them according to sphere standards, depending on the resources that can be raised. I am sure zakat and other charity for Ramadan could be used.
    Your participation in this noble cause will be appreciated

    Subject: Appeal for Flood Relief

    Peace Greetings from CDF.

    Community Development Foundation (CDF), based in District Shaheed Benazirabad (Nawabshah) is Non-Profit and Non-Government Organization (NGO) registered under the Voluntary Social Welfare Agencies Ordinance 1961 (XLVI of 1961) with Government of Pakistan. CDF is mandated through its charter to support sustainable development initiatives and bring improvement in the quality of life of the marginalized communities in their field areas through Human and Institutional Development. Presently, CDF is working in remote areas of District Benazirabad, Sindh, Pakistan.
    During the current flood situation, a heavy detriment has seen in all over the Pakistan. District Shaheed Benazirabad (Nawabshah) also having worst situation especially in nine (09) union councils of said area are completely ruined due to heavy rainfall and flood in Indus River. About 9,000 households have badly effected due to this disaster. They have lost their houses, food and other home equipment along with loss of standing crops which in turns will raise the burden of loan.
    Currently, CDF is working with District Government for emergency rescue operation and food supply but rising of these IDPs is upcoming challenge for CDF that is not possible without generous support. CDF seeks to explore areas of collaboration and support with the potential partners and philanthropists for the relief and rehabilitation of these effected communities as the situation in upcoming days would be more dreadful due to food shortage and outbreaks of disease.
    Hoping positive and urgent response from you

    Thanks and regards

    Floods in Pakistan – Situation report No 7 – 6 August 2010

    06 Aug 2010

    According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, over 4 million people have been affected by the flood. The latest National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) figures show that the number of deaths has reached 1 002. A total of 263 590 houses have been damaged.

    An emergency has been declared in Northern Sindh on 6 and 7 August, as huge amounts of water rush through Indus River , particularly between Ghotki and Kashmore districts. Over 350 000 people have been moved to safer places. On 6 August, torrential rains hampered evacuation efforts and the movement of relief supplies. According to the early warning flood telemetry system, more than 8 million cubic metres of water per second will pass through the province in the next 24 hours.

    In Punjab , the districts of Muzzafargarh, DG Khan, Layyah, Rajanpur and Rahim Yar Khan are the worst affected districts in the southern part of the province, while the districts of Mianwali and Khushab in the north-west are also badly affected. Water levels in the Indus in southern Punjab are receding but remain critically high. A total of 48 relief camps have been established in the districts of Bhakkar, Dera Ghazi Khan, Khusab and Mianwali.

    In Balochistan, people from Trehar and Tehdi were evacuated to Lehri town due to heavy rains. With the exception of Lehri town, the whole of Lehri Tehsil is badly affected.

    On 5August 2010, daily disease surveillance reports were received from 114 health facilities from eight flood-affected districts in KPK. The health facilities reported a total of 31 652 patient consultations through the DEWS. Acute diarrhoea (AD) accounted for 14% of patient visits in all age groups (4589 cases). Scabies accounted for 23% of consultations (7 301 cases). Acute respiratory tract infections (ARI) were the third most common cause of consultations (12% of visits, or 3845 cases). The table below reflects the daily number of cases reported from flood-affected districts in KPK.

    DEWS is functional in all flood affected districts in KPK, and acute diarrhoea trends are monitored on a weekly basis. On the onset of floods, acute diarrhoea accounted for between 11% and 13% of total patient visits at health facilities. This weekly trend is used as the baseline to monitor the diarrhoea situation in the flood-affected districts. The figure below shows the weekly trend of acute diarrhoea in 2009 and 2010 (until epidemiological week 29 which ended on 23 July).

    Both mobile medical teams and fixed health facilities have begun daily reporting on priority communicable diseases. The daily trend of acute diarrhoea in flood-affected districts fluctuates between 13% and 14% of total patient consultations, as shown in the graph below.

    Two alerts for acute watery diarrhoea outbreaks were reported (one from Civil Hospital Pachakalay, District Buner on 3 August and another from Chendangari village of Frontier Peshawar ). The total number of cases has reached 70 patients. To date, the area is inaccessible due to security issues. Executive District Officer – Health is responding to the alert. Punjab

    Daily disease surveillance has also been initiated in the flood-affected districts of Punjab . Of the total patient visits, 13% were cases of skin diseases and 8% were acute diarrhoea. A total of 28 dog and four snake bites were also reported.

    The environmental health situation in Nowshera and Charsadda in KPK is very poor, with pools of stagnant water and dead animals everywhere. The following issues were identified during the assessment:

    More than 20 000 families living in spontaneous, overcrowded IDP camps need to be relocated to properly planned and sited camps where proper support to meet their basic needs can be provided.
    Access to safe drinking water is the biggest health risk facing affected communities, since groundwater sources have been submerged and surface water has been contaminated by the floodwater.
    Most people have no choice but to use flood water for drinking purposes, as all the water supply systems and hand pumps are out of order.
    The stagnant water provides a breeding ground for flies and mosquitoes.
    There are very few functional latrines for the affected communities; most latrines are full and/or submerged. There are no pit latrines in IDP areas: most people are defecating in the flood water, and using the same water for drinking and bathing.
    The floods have swept away pots, pans, kitchen utensils, beds and bedding and other household items, leaving many people with without the basic necessities.
    The incidence of water-borne diseases and malaria is likely to increase as the floodwaters recede and stagnate.
    We so your Ngo will be send help for displaced peoples,

    This is a time when Pakistan should unite against such inefficiencies of the country. Just like we are are united against the militants we must question 1000 deaths also. It is important that now the aid is utilized in the interest of the citizens.
