Excerpt from Pakistan Rising:
'So Pakistan Rising is officially on the ground in NWFP.
This past weekend Pakistan Rising distributed relief packages to 300 families in 3 locations in Buner and Mardan adding up to approximately 2400 people. Additionally Pakistan Rising has started providing relief to a few displaced families currently residing in Lahore as well. A big thank you to everyone who's contributed to Pakistan Rising so far..
Please continue your generous support..also spread the word about Pakistan Rising..we need as many of you on board as possible.The situation in the Frontier is grim but things are slowly improving. The Pakistan Rising team visited a food distribution point jointly run by the CRDO (community research and development organisation) and WFP (world Food Program) in Charsadda. The distribution point was being operated very efficiently and in a highly organised way with a lot of emphasis being given to the comfort of the IDPs. Pakistan Rising also visited
Pelosa camp comprising 560 families in Charsadda being managed by the Army and the relevant Union Council in a school. All tents had fans and the camp has electricity and a standby generator. The army along with the local administration was looking after the affairs of that camp and things look to be on the right track there. The Army has also entered relief work in a big way. Their surveying teams are combing through all the union councils registering all IDPs living with host families or relatives.Finally a special word of appreciation for the locals of that area who have literally thrown open their homes to the IDPs..a lot of local families have moved out of their own homes so that the IDP's could live there while they themselves have moved into their animal sheds or out in the open.
Guys this is a battle all of us have to win! We have to treat our IDP brothers and sisters with the respect and honour they deserve. they have sacrificed for us so that we can live a Taliban free life and let's also not forget that it was the people from the NWFP who helped liberate the parts of Jammu and Kashmir now known as Azad Jammu & Kashmir. Pakistan Rising with your help has now begun the trek towards a better Pakistan..
Join us in fighting this battle for the soul and sovereignity of our country. Donate genorously your time inputs, ideas and money or in kind. Do ask others to do the same as well..do not hesitate to contact us if any info is required.
Pakistan Hamesha Zindabad!!'
