Please help in initiating corporate response at the company you work for. This can effectively double the donations to the floods with very little effort. Use the following document on how to help out:
Devastating floods in Pakistan have affected 8.1 million people so far and the condition is getting worse by the day. The lip service media coverage coupled with ineffective government response is quickly turning this into a huge humanitarian crisis.
The families affected belong to the poorest population of the province and they have lost everything including their already meager sources of livelihood.
Many international aid organizations have launched their response and corresponding appeals (see below). Private donations to these organizations can help a great deal in alleviating the suffering.
Ignoring factors such as location, ethnicity, religion, inefficient government, political aspects and looking from purely a humanitarian perspective, this disaster deserves more help.
Scale of Disaster:
8.1 Million people affected 2.7 million children according to UNICEF.
1.8 million displaced, 2 million sick.
1.5 million home destroyed
40,900 villages destroyed
6.6 million acres under water
2.2 million acres of crop damaged (i.e. 72 per cent of crops)
1.4 million houses destroyed
625,000 people in relief camps
