The news of flash floods that devastated almost half of Pakistan's villages and rural areas have spread all over the world. At present the flood water with a torrential speed of more than One Million cusecs is heading towards the lower half of Pakistan. This would displace more people and render many more homeless. So far about 15 million people have become homeless while leaving some 1500 dead. Of the 15 million so displaced, 6 million are children.
Pakistan alone cannot rehabilitate these children of lesser gods. I request all well to do Pakistanis living at home or aborad to come forward and contribute in to Pakistan Army Relief Fund. Pakistan Army is presently engaged in large scale flood relief operation throughout the country and need every penny that you may spare to help those under the still raining sky.
