Help Response to the Flooding in Pakistan
August 3, 2010
Recent floods in northwestern Pakistan are the worst in 80 years, with UN estimates placing the death toll at more than 1,000 people and at least one million people in need of assistance.
Synergos does not have on-the-ground programs in Pakistan, so we are consulting with members of our networks for appropriate ways to send support. Groups they suggest include:
- Pakistan National Disaster Management Fund
- Omar Asghar Khan Foundation
- Indus Resource Centre
- Khwendo Kor
- UN Refugee Agency
- Doctors Without Borders
- CARE International
The UN Refugee Agency has also partnered with mGive to enable giving by text messaging: text SWAT to 50555 to donate money (more info).
