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"

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:

  • Provide nearly 10,000 people with safe drinking water – daily – immediately after the flood
  • Distribute thousands of emergency food kits containing rice, lentils, cooking oil and powdered milk.
  • Distribute 330 tool kits containing a wheelbarrow, shovel and hammer to help families rebuild their homes, farms and businesses.
  • Distribute hygiene kits that benefited 56,730 people.
  • Organize the distribution of water-purification tablets to far-flung villages.
  • Build new water points and repair handpumps.
  • Install 300 latrines and 26 bathrooms.
  • Establish mobile health units that treated 12,230 patients.
  • Implement cash-for-work programs to start rebuilding and repairing vital infrastructure - schools, irrigation canals, access roads - and to educate other villagers about important topics like proper hygiene.
  • 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 :)
