Dear Pat. and Burt,
Pl. add in your previous post in the theonenesslovefoundation.org as well on facebook if needed thanks so much my beloved my sister Mr. Burt you may also share with ABC4ALL along with Pat. post where you need edit it. ( for two day I will not be able to acess computer )
I would like to make you aware about the terrible situation Pakistan is faced with at present due to heavy monsoon rains and floods. These monsoon rains started about two weeks ago and these have caused devastating floods all round the country. As BBC has written "Pakistan under water" is literally true. According to the UN report 1,600 people have died and 14 million people are directly affected by these worst floods of our living memory of this country. As UN puts it that $459 million are needed in emergency aid to give some relief to these people who have been affected. The situation is getting worse day by day. I will be forwarding you some photos of these floods which I have saved from BBC website. Hope you will able to see them.
Our TV news channels are full of the horrific news and stories, showing the destroyed villages and cities, people caught in flood water struggling to save their lives and people are starving to death and how some relief goods are distributed among them, mostly through the helicopters - because most of these area roads are destroyed and bridges collapsed.
It is very unfortunate that our country is faced with so many crises one after an other. There was worst earthquake of our history about a couple of years ago, followed by Swat Valley humanitarian crises over 3 million Internally Displaced People, on going killings caused by terrorist attacks, suicide attacks and extremism and now floods.
Please pray and offer special meditations so that we may be able to face these crucial times and all those families which are affected may get some comfort and relief. Your Relief support will be highly appreciated. Thanks!
