Flood Relief (Pakistan)

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Pakistan has been hit by the worst of floods in its history of 63 years, in the aftermath of torrential monsoon rains.
A reported 1,600 have died so far across the country as rescue agents and relief workers attempted to reach
millions of stranded and displaced citizens.

Entire villages have been swallowed, fertile lands destroyed, stripping farmers of their livelihood. Bridges and
roadways have collapsed. People desperate to keep their livestock walk neck deep in water, pulling the animals
along. Many cities have been cut off from the main circuit, after being lashed by heavy rains.

The flood has affected an estimated 20 million people till now, with warnings of further devastation and a ‘second
wave of deaths’ as monsoon stubbornly persists in the region. Officials warn that more people could be affected
as river levels are expected to continue to rise in coming days. Multiple locations up north have been entirely cut
off from the rest of the country, and the Pakistani military has had to employ boats and helicopters in order to
carry out rescue operations.

Floodwaters are continuously moving downstream in the Indus River and have now reached Sindh, adding
millions to the people affected.

The following is a shared document with information relating to the funds being collected to provide relief
to some of the millions of people affected by the floods in Pakistan.

We are not an organization, but are a group of friends/students/colleagues without any ethnic and political
biases and leanings trying to help the people of Pakistan affected by the floods for the sake of Allah.
