The flooding in Pakistan is beyond imagination. You can see some of the heart-wrenching imagery here and here.

Those in America can TXT "SWAT" to 50555 and it will give $10 dollars to UNHCR-PK. Otherwise, please donate via any of the organizations listed here.

You can also contribute to the MercyCorps initiative Relief4Pakistan.

As usual, I can whole-heartedly recommend EDHI, though they are not online.

These friends are doing work on the ground. Ramazan Flood Relief.

If you are in Pakistan/Non-USA, you can also contribute to this effort by SA Relief and donate specifically to them:

To that end, SA Relief operating under the aiegus of Paksef has joined hands with Motorclub of Pakistan, and Off-Roaders Pakistan to collect funds for flood relief victims starting with areas surrounding Moro, Sindh by distributing care packets.

Each care packet will contain 20 kg flour, 2 kg dal, 1 kg oil, and 3 kg rice,. Based on current market rates each packet will costs 920 PKR (Pakistani Rupees), that is around 13 USD (U.S. Dollars).
What we need is your help in raising funds, please donate generously.

Donations can be made one of two ways:
By depositing into MOTORSPORTS CLUB PAKISTAN account at Samba Bank Ltd. in Karachi. A/C#06500379349 or ChipIn via PayPal:

Those else where can check here or here for useful organizations.

You should also see the Donor Factsheet on Pakistan by Global Humanitarian Fund which dramatically highlights how little humanitarian aid actually flows into Pakistan from "official" sites. Which is what makes efforts, such as this, relying on individuals donating to international or national organizations all the more valuable.

Spread the word. Donate. Please.
