I humbly request your support of two very different but very important projects, the first one being of paramount importance at this time with the flood disaster only getting worse. The other project is a more long term effort to bridge misconceptions through msical collaborations between Pakistan and America. Every donation is appreciated and effectively utilized, no matter how large or small…
EMERGENCY FLOOD RELIEF IN PAKISTAN
With more rains forecast in the coming days, Pakistan’s flood emergency is just beginning. The total property damage could end up being even worse than the 2005 earthquake. Whole villages have been swept away, the wheat, rice, cotton and fruit harvest has been destroyed and the death toll is rising. Thousands are stranded and in need of medical assistance, baby milk, clean water, SilverDYNE Solution (for killing bacteria in drinking water), malaria medications and mosquito nets. CDRS / SHINE Humanity is coordinating with other agencies and has deployed experienced disaster relief and medical personnel to the affected areas.
