Hello and Welcome from Basit Riaz Sheikh - Cornell University
Thank you for visiting my fund-raising page for the Pakistani floods victims. All funds go directly to UNHCR to help in their relief efforts for the Pakistani flood victims.
MILLIONS OF FLOOD VICTIMS REQUIRE ASSISTANCE TODAY
Severe rains and torrential floods have displaced over 12 million people in Pakistan, including children. Crops worth billions of dollars have been destroyed. Our national infrastructure has suffered a colossal damage. Urgent help is needed. According to the UN, in terms of the devastation, the recent floods in Pakistan have been worse than the Tsunami of 2004 and Haiti earthquake combined. The UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon, who visited Pakistan a few days earlier, made the following observation:
"I will never forget the destruction and suffering I have witnessed today.In the past I have seen scenes of natural disaster around the world, but nothing like this. The scale of this disaster is so large. So many people in so many places in so much need."
Please help UNHCR immediately provide flood victims with shelter and other emergency supplies.£25 will provide 10 blankets for flood victims.
£60 provides a survival kit containing a blanket, a mattress, a kitchen set, a cooking stove and soap
£125 provides an all-weather tent to shelter a displaced family.
Please be generous and help as much as you can. Even a contribution as little as $1 will go a long way in making a big difference.
So far, UNHCR has provided more than 41,000 plastic tarpaulins, 14,500 family tents, 70,000 blankets, 40,000 sleeping mats, 14,800 kichen sets, 26,000 jerry cans18,600 plastic buckets 17,700 mosquito nets and 13.3 tons of soap.
Thank you for your support.
