    • You can send relief goods free of cost to Pakistan via PIA. Please see the link http://www.piac.com.pk (direct link http://bit.ly/9S2vSH) for details of approved and needed items & where to drop them off.
      Do involve others in the relief goods and donations drive. It’s a very dire situation and every little bit counts.
      thank you

  21. It is the inability of the present PPP lead coalition government to have failed in mobilizing the people as a nation in this time of need. People of Pakistan are going through the worst flood of history are increasingly impatient over a lack of food ,water, shelter and other relief goods, criticizing Pakistan government for mismanagement. The government has failed to live upto the expectations of the people in providing relief. The previous regime did wonders when it not only mobilized everyone but also carried out the relief works successfully when the earthquake stroked.
    During the chaotic situation the nation felt pleasant when PM Gillani met Nawaz Sharif. Their joint declaration of setting up a trustworthy and transparent tribunal to look after the flow of flood rehabilitation fund was a very positive move. But it did not prove to be turning point when, later, PM announced that Nawaz Sharif’s idea of setting up the tribunal is not practical. This stance clearly showed the true colors of the government. The government, both federal and the provincial, have no insight into handling a disaster in an efficient way. This change in PM Gillani’s stance on the issue of transparency and fair distribution raised many eyebrows from every segment of the society. The nation once again realized that after all it’s the turn of PM and his cabinet to follow the presidency’s footstep. PM like always tries to portray his “gentlemen” image but fails to do so. It is very unfortunate for the nation that the government has placed an additional authority over the already controversial NDMA just to monitor the flow of funds. That’s the same organization which the government was cursing after the famous trip of PM Gillani to the fake medical camp at Mianwali.
    No doubt, the international community is willing to help us. W must be thankful to Saudi Arabia that has risen up to the occasion. Saudi Kingdom has really gone an extra mile with its effort for the flood victims of Pakistan. On the other hand UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon visit was highly commendable as it projected the entire episode in front of the international community. In addition to this we must be thankful to every state which came to our help in this time of need but the way our political forces have behaved so far, they must be thinking twice before lending a hand to us again. Nobody believes the money will get to those who need.
    Today the world knows Pakistan as a country with excessive corruption and pathetic under-performance of the state institutions. The world wonders what type democracy Pakistan has. Unfortunately the state is captured by small band of political elite which has the control over the resources of the country. Meanwhile I would say that the second so-called major party namely PML (N) is no different from the ruling party PPP. These two parties have looted the wealth for decades. As long as these two corrupt parties keep playing the musical chair game of power with the nation, one must not hope for any improvement to the lives of the people of this country. May Allah bless us and keep our country away from all perils.
