Pakistan Floods

IRD is an International Development agency doing excellent work in Africa Asia and other places.Please contribute to enable , &  empower them to help the maximum. people.

Thanks a lot.


An estimated 3 million people, including 1 million children, have been affected by the torrential rains in Pakistan and are in urgent need of food, water, medicine, and shelter. IRD is among a small number of international NGOs with operations in both D. I. Khan and Tank Districts, the most severely affected areas. With the help of people like you, IRD has already been able to move quickly to address the emergency needs of thousands of families in these districts.
Your cash contributions to IRD’s Pakistan Floods Relief Fund are critical to continuing and expanding these relief efforts.
We are concentrating our efforts on providing shelter, safe water, sanitation, and non-food items, such as blankets and clothing. Your support will also help us to re-stock flood-damaged health clinics, focusing on treatments for water borne illnesses, oral rehydration salts, and primary health care pharmaceuticals.   
The situation on the ground is extremely uncertain and is expected to get worse in the coming weeks. Access in many areas has been cut off by the rising waters; houses, schools, roads, and vital infrastructure have been washed away; and forecasters predict at least two more weeks of heavy rain.
We need your immediate support. Act now with a gift to help alleviate the suffering of thousands of people.
Please make a tax deductable donation today. If you have questions, or wish to find out how you can help raise funds for this important effort, please call Daniel Puls at 703-248-0194.
And consider forwarding this e-mail to family and friends. The more people involved in the effort, the bigger the difference we can make.
Dr. Arthur B. Keys Jr.
President and CEO
