Appeal for Flood relief in Pakistan
So far I had hesitated in collecting funds for this major major disaster as there are just too many individuals trying to do their bit.
However two days ago I heard that SIUT – Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation – a well organised and respected body in this country and elsewhere have set up their own camps in all 4 provinces of Pakistan to render immediate medical help which is required desperately. Unfortunately everything is needed and the situation is dire. I have spoken to the second in command Dr Anwer Naqvi who actually is the man running SIUT, and am fully satisfied. I can vouch 100% for SIUT, that is all I can say, as they run their hospitals free of charge irrespective of who can pay and so far totally corruption free.
I am attaching the flyer that has been put together by me and if you would inform the Perth community and others we would appreciate it. They can send their contributions to your centre and when there is a substantial amount, you may send the cheque to my account direct through your bank.
See note above from Toxy Cowasjee
The fortunes of happiness and prosperity are indeed blessed upon us, and yet there is so much suffering happening to our less fortunate brethren and humanity.
Please share a thought and donate generously. You may wish to pass on this e-mail to your friends and family. I urge associations and groups to fund-raise.
I have known Toxy for a long time- she lives in Karachi and is the vice chair of WZO. Toxy was indeed the person on the ground during the devastating earthquake-2005 in Pakistan raising much needed funds and visiting those affected areas – distributing aid.
Attached WZO relief appeal. The need of the hour is to keep people alive through medication and medical supplies. Food and clothing will be useless if we cannot keep them alive.
