Flood relief – TCF aims to provide 20 million meals

Information on flood relief fund set up by The Citizens Foundation (TCF), a leading non-profit organisation formed by Pakistanis for Pakistanis. This is a reliable NGO with a long track record in education, and also in relief work during the 2005 earthquake. TCF provides formal education to 92,000 less privileged children throughout the country and in AJ&K. TCF will use its network of 660 purpose-built school units in hundreds of rural areas and urban slums located in 68 towns and cities across Pakistan to provide 20 million meals in 30 days to flood affected people.

TCF is putting together ration bags containing flour, rice, cooking oil/ghee, lentils, dried milk, sugar, salts and spices, dates etc. Each bag will feed a family for a month and is worth approx PKR 2,500 (USD 30) including transport. Any amount of donation is welcomed. Donations can be sent to TCF in several ways. Email info@thecitizensfoundation.org for more info or see this link for more information including direct online link for donations.

Flood relief – Charsadda, Nowshehra, Pubbi and Peshawar motorway

Adnan Mufti, a young chartered accountant I know in Karachi, sent information about relief efforts by a group of educated, dedicated and committed individuals he knows working in parts of Charsadda, Nowshehra, Pubbi and Peshawar motorway areas. Charsadda, incidentally, was the home of Bacha Khan, the ‘Frontier Gandhi’ (see report Charsadda lies in ruins). >

Floods: Biggest disaster to hit Pakistan; reliable donation links

What was till today described as the worst floods in Pakistan’s history has now been termed as the biggest disaster ever to strike the country. Report by Anita Joshua in The Hindu

An update to my earlier post Pakistan floods: Links to send donations, relief goods. Please see Rural Support Programme flood appeal. Details in Shandana Khan’s email below – she earlier worked with the internally displaced after the exodus from Swat and other areas following the army operation against militants. She writes:

The RSP Network will provide your donations to its member organisations or Rural Support Programmes, in Punjab, Pukhtunkhwa, Sindh, Balochistan and AJK. The RSPs are working with flood victims. The RSPs will assist flood victims mainly through their existing community networks and field-based offices in the flood affected districts.

The RSP Network is registered in Pakistan as a non-profit and is the largest network of non-government, rural development organisations or Rural Support Programmes with an outreach to 3 million rural households. See http://www.rspn.org for donation details.
