Its been a hectic week and a half, since me and Awab Alvi decided to roll our sleeves up and do something for the floodÂ victimsÂ of Pakistan andÂ specificallyÂ sindh. The resulting initiative saw many friends joining us in our effort, as well as bloggers and tweeple from our online lives. They are now actively collaborating with us (Sarelief) to spread the word, collect recources and to get them to where it counts the most.
For this purpose we were heading out to moroÂ tomorrowÂ in Sindh but unfortunately the situation there has become very risky with the oncoming flood in the area. The bund/barrage at moro is under threat to break as well. Thus we have taken a last minute decision and sent our trucks to sukkur with us followingÂ tomorrowÂ morning for a distribution rally on sunday. We should, if all goes well have about 1100 hampers to distribute plus 70 tents and 300 cartons of water plus 150 cans of tinned (ready to eat food). Each hamper can feed a family for 10-12 days minimum while each tent can house nine people.
We are joined in this relief effort by volunteers as well as friends and our thoughts as well as updates will be coming in on the following cover it live app. Hope to get the tremendous support shown to us into hands most needy of it!!
