Pakistan Floods as bad as African Famines…
Assalaamu Alaykum WaRahmatullahi WaBarakatahu,
UN says that almost a quarter of the children under 5 are malnourished. In the beginning of the year UN has declared Pakistan Flood Crisis as bad as the previous African famines.
Torrential rains this year have been wreaking havoc on water streams in Punjab and are posing serious threat of flooding. The village of Badin has been declared calamity hit.
Many people have been deserted; heavy rainfall has affected their crops and acres of cultivation.
Helping Hand for Relief and Development has been on the ground since the floods on last year. This year as well HHRD is prepared to take action in times of adversity.
This Ramadan let’s direct our Zakat, Sadaqat and Fitra towards the most needed parts of the world.
