P@SHA launches Flood Relief Drive

September 14, 2011 at 12:44 pm 6 comments

The recent floods in the Southern part of Pakistan in the Sindh province have already affected 5.3 million people and 1.2 million homes in 23 districts .1.7 million acres of arable land has been inundated according to the National Disaster Management Authority’s (NDMA).

As it continues to rain people don’t have enough to eat or clean drinking water. Many are homeless and have no clothes to change into. Health problems mount with insufficient medical care available.

We cannot stand by and watch all this happen. P@SHA has already started to contribute toward the relief of the flood affectees. However, we need your help. More money is needed to provide food and shelter and fresh drinking water and medicines.

Please donate generously by sending in a cheque made out to the “Pakistan Software Houses Association” to Room 310, 3rd Floor; Block 6 PECHS Karachi. Phone: 021-35418121. Put in a note telling us that this is for flood relief. We will make sure the money is used wisely.

Let us join hands now to help our brethren in time of need. It is the least we can do. (Photographs courtesy of Fursid )

    As always P@SHA acts at this hour of need. I think a list of items needed at the affected areas would be very helpful for people who would like to donate goods, food items and medicines.
