The Council of European Jamaats in partnership with The World Federation, The Africa Federation and NASIMCO is launching the Pakistan Flood Appeal 2010.
Over 3 million people would be affected and forecasters have predicted more rain in the upcoming days that will cause further devastation. This is the worst flooding in more than 80 years in Pakistan.
The displaced victims in Northern Pakistan are suffering and The World Federation of KSIMC is appealing to all communities around the world to donate generously. The World Federation has set a target to collect £80,000 for this appeal.
The World Federation is working with the Hussaini Foundation to explore the urgent provision of immediate relief and medium to long term assistance to the displaced victims. The Hussaini Foundation has already set-up its relief team and is sending out food parcels to the victims and has undertaken the following assessment in four key areas:
The Foundation is also undertaking a detailed assessment from its grassroots sources to evaluate the extent of damage to houses and property, but due to disruption caused by the devastation in the infrastructure and communications networks, this has been challenging. The long-term rebuilding of the affected areas could take several years because of the extent of the devastation.
The World Federation is deeply distraught and concerned about the devastation and loss of lives and strongly appeals to all donors to donate generously. Your contribution will make a great impact on the lives of all those who have lost everything, including their homes and their livelihood.
The momineen are also requested to remember the victims in your Duas.
