Help Pakistan Flood Victims
help_pakistan.jpgWe are deeply saddened by the significant loss of lives in Pakistan floods. This was one of the worst in the last 80 years. A Pakistani Red Crescent official told that the number of people affected by the floods has risen to nearly 2.5 million people, with infrastructure receiving major damage. "We estimate that about 100,000 people, mostly children, have been hit by cholera and gastro diseases," Syed Zahir Ali Shah, health minister for Khyber-Pakhtoonkhwa, was quoted by AFP as saying. As the relief effort in flood-hit Pakistan intensified Monday, officials were bracing themselves for an outbreak of disease among the millions affected by the country's worst deluge in 80 years.  The United Nations said there is a need for help in providing emergency shelter, food, drinking water and sanitation facilities. Its agencies are geared to help with these issues. President Asif Ali Zardari said all available resources would be used to help those stranded by the waters, the APP reported.
