Appeal From Shine Humanity

Dear Friends,
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…
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.

    Shine Humanity,

    I want to send my contribution … however, why is donation being asked when the US and EU have already announced aid for victims of the flood.

    Where have the billions gone those are being given by the US, Saudis, Japan, World Bank ?
    … no ‘ strategies ‘ for such contingencies ?

    Project to ‘ bridge to misconceptions through msical collaborations between Pakistan and America ‘ ? …

    You are not kidding, right ?

    Misconceptions between Pakistan and America ( and other countries ) can / will be removed by handing over Osama Bin Laden saheb and others to the US.

    Please do not begin another game with earnings of the poor … we are already exasperated with our lives.

    It will be better to send teams for organising relief if you will … thank you for your effort though.

    I received a message on my cell phone with respect to your collection efforts for the flood victims in Pakistan.

    The message said that the donations could be made out our Comprehensive Disaster Response Services and deposited at MCB Bank to account number 0592-01-01-004883-2.

    Please confirm and inform me whether this message is authentic or not.
