Relief help for the victims of floods in Pakistan
Relief help for the victims of floods in Pakistan.
Over 1500 people have lost their lives and about 3 millions have been directly displaced and dispossessed by the unprecedented floods in Pakistan. The situation continues to unfold with news of more and more casualties on hour by hour basis.
All the information coming out of Pakistan is indicating more rain over the coming days making any relief work potentially hazardous. The floods have destroyed roads and bridges thereby making it impossible for relief workers and volunteers to reach communities left stranded and isolated by the rising tides of water over very very large areas. People in the affected areas are without fresh water, shelter, food and medicine. The threat to peoples health of diseases such as cholera and dysentery is very real.
Bradford Council for Mosques is working closely with UK based charities for example, Human relief and Islamic Relief, to organise relief effort for the victims of the floods.
Khadim Hussain, the president of Bradford Council for Mosques said,
“ We are asking all communities of Bradford to rally around and give generously towards for the victims of flood. Bradfordians have always contributed generously to help victims of natural disasters all over the world and I am sure that they will also respond positively this time again.”
“ we are encouraging people to contribute their help through existing charities such as the Human Relief, Islamic Relief and Muslim Hands who are already active in the affected areas and have the necessary infrastructure in place to get the help to those who most needed it”
“ We are discouraging people from undertaking individual ventures of relief support. The complete destruction of communication links in the affected areas and the deteriorating weather conditions will make individual efforts difficult and dangerous”
