Pakistan floods: How to help

August 6, 2010 - Sana Saleem
NOWSHERA, PAKISTAN - AUGUST 3: People line up to receive water relief supplies from a local charity on August 3, 2010 in Pabi near to Nowshera, Pakistan. Residents, in dire need of basic relief supplies like water and food, continued to forage through their belongings affected by the country's worst floods since 1929, according to officials. Heavy monsoon rains have triggered severe, deadly flooding in Northwest Pakistan, claiming the lives of more than 1,100 people and forcing thousands from their homes. The United Nations estimates that around one million people nationwide are affected by the disaster. (Photo by Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images)

Over 1400 people have lost their lives, more than four million  have been effected. Please donate generously and help spread the plea of the flood victims of Pakistan.

 Below is a list of organizations working on ground for flood relief in various parts of the country. I plan to add more names and details to the list as I find out. For now this is the list with all necessary information for donations. Please help as much as you can!

Future Leaders Of Pakistan
A wholesale dealer (Punjab Rice Store, Markaz G-9 Karachi Company) Mohammed Tahir (0512262176 & 03005800503) has quoted the following rates which are inclusive of labour and packing charges, and will be ready for collection two days after the order is placed. 

The prices he quoted comes to approximately Rs 1500 per household package that lasts around 12 days for a household of seven to eight people, and includes:

2 kg daal chana/maash @ Rs. 56/kg = Rs. 112
2 kg lobia @ Rs. 80/kg = Rs. 160
5 kg rice @ Rs. 50/kg = Rs. 250
2 kg sugar @ Rs. 70/kg = Rs. 140
0.5 kg tea @ Rs. 400/kg = Rs. 200
1 kg Nestle Everyday @ Rs. 372/kg = Rs. 372
2.5 liters Cooking Oil (Pakwan) Rs. 265
Total Rs. 1499 per package.

Note that “Nestle Everyday” contains sugar hence it is more expensive than bulk powdered milk.

An NGO in Charsadda UM Healthcare Trust (www.umtrust.org) is asking for baby/infant formula milk ASAP (at least one truckload)

As for clean water, we recommend water purification tablets instead of bottled mineral water. The tablets might be more cost effective.

If you want to procure the materials yourself the location of this store is in G-9 Markaz. When you approach Karachi Company/G-9 Markaz from Ibn i Seena Road, turn onto Mangla Road. Then in front of Bank Al-falah turn onto Rohtas Road. You will pass a mosque on your left, followed by a car dealership (Usama Motors) and the Muslim Driving School. Turn into the lane along the driving school. In front will be a pan shop (Mujeeb Pan House). Punjab Rice Mills is located opposite the pan shop. 

Please donate to help the survivors and victims of the horrendous floods, and try to spread the word as much as possible!
