Message from Adnan Shahid
Dear Family and Friends,
Thank you for your Birthday wishes. Can I please request you to donate my birthday gift to the flood affectees of Pakistan.
This page was started last year to raise funds for the devastating 2010 flood affectees of Pakistan. After barely recovering from last year's flood, the same province and same neighborhoods are under water, again. Heavy, prolonged rainfall has caused canal breaches and more flooding. The UN reports that over 5 million people are facing a housing and health crisis. Mercy Corps is responding with emergency clean water and sanitation to about 12,000 people in displaced communities. They have also established mobile medical clinics to treat injuries and disease – Mercy Corps teams are able to see 50 patients a day
You can read more about recent floods in Pakistan in blog - "Rains slow, but urgent needs remain" http://www.mercycorps.org/jeffreyshannon/blog/25996
Once again, I would like to use my birthday to raise funds to help people in need. Mercy Corps reports that your funds and donations helped them:
Please help me raise money to help Mercy Corps aid families affected by the flooding.
Thank you for your overwhelming support to the call for donations always and once again thank you for your Birthday wishes :)
