Pakistan Earthquake: Pakistanis across the country were startled in the early morning hours by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that sent tremors as far as Dubai and the UAE. Remote areas of Baluchistan and Quetta were hit the hardest as the numbers of causalities are slowly trickling in. Helping Hand for Relief and Development is closely monitoring the situation and will contact its donors if any help is needed.
Winter Flood Campaign: The floods of 2010 in Pakistan have left over 10 million people without the basic necessities to cope with the fierce winter weather ahead. Donating $50, which includes the cost for transportation, will allow for one winter package to reach these families.
Package includes: 2 Comforters, 2 Warm Cotton Bedding (Tulaee), Winter Shawl, 2 Sweaters, Woolen Hat, and 2 Woolen Scarves.
