The P@SHA Earthquake Relief team has been busy
The core team consists of:
- Sarang Abbasi (sarang at alchemya dot com)
- Syed Talha Izhar (stalha dot izhar at gmail dot com)
- Muhammad Imran, (mimran at pixsense dot com)
- Syed Azhar A. Rizvi (azharrizvi at gmail dot com)
- Sadia Zaidi (secretariat at pasha dot org dot pk)
- Jehan Ara (president at pasha dot org dot pk)
Collections have already started at Universities and IT companies. In fact Sarang and Talha have started motivating kids who had no idea that help was needed. The group is getting larger as we draw in people from various institutions. Imran was identified as the person who could obtain food at wholesales prices for distribution to victims of the earthquake.
PixSense and Alchemy have offered to stock the goods in Karachi until we arrange for the shipments. The first shipment is due to leave on Saturday Nov 8.
In Lahore Chairman P@SHA Imran Zia (imran at vahzay dot com) has offered to coordinate efforts and set up a collection camp at Vahzay. In Islamabad Atif Mumtaz (atif at brightspyre dot com) co-Founder of Brightspyre has offered his services and that of the Brightspyre team.
