It has rightly been said that “RAIN IS A BLESSING IN DISGUISE.” However, the monsoon rains of this year in Pakistan bring with them a bad omen for millions of Pakistanis. The Northern Areas of Pakistan are seriously affected due to the heavy and stormy rains. The Province of Khaibar Pakhtun Khuwa, Punjab & Sindh have been declared disastrous areas. The whole of city of Nowshera, District Mianwali, Dera Ismail Khan, Muzaffar Garh, Kabirwala, Multan, Dera Allah Yar Districts, Gilgit Baltistan areas, and many others villages/towns have been destroyed. All this is mind blowing. Millions of people are living in conditions of misery. They are homeless. They have nothing to eat and nothing to wear. Food stuff, pure water, clothes, blankets and tents are their most immediate needs. Many diseases have broken out due to the standing of dirty water. Medicines are also urgently required to save and protect these precious lives.
Life has become a hell for the people in these areas. Their conditions are very pitiable. The children are dying of hunger. There are not sufficient facilities for sufficient shelter. Whole cities have been destroyed. Huge buildings have been reduced to heaps of death. Big bazaars have turned in to heaps of mud. All the affected areas are deserted. Life seems to have disappeared. The crops have also been destroyed by the rains; especially the crops of cotton, vegetables, and rice which is a staple food and national source of income.
The need of the moment is the rehabilitation of the people affected in these areas. Many people have been deprived of their relatives. This flood has taken away many human lives with it, and those who remain alive are still in danger of death due to the non-availability of basic necessities. There is a near possibility of losing more life if a conscious effort is not made to re-establish the situation.
I urge you if you can, please provide some contribution to console your brothers and sisters in this moment of gripped sorrow. No doubt it will take the long term for the circumstances to come back to normal; but our present aim is just to provide some relief to the victims this heavy flood. We just desire to save human lives, and we require your help in this matter. I hope you will help them as much as possible; the whole nation would be thankful to you for this good deed.
