Pakistan is in need of our assistance – financial and non-financial. Having financially donated to the UN, I am now trying to help non-financially through projects to raise awareness and prompt more aid. These include:

1. A national level PR campaign involving celebrities to promote this cause
2. Fund Raising both at the corporate and individual level
3. Informational Portal (website and content)
4. One Day summit organization

If you are interested in donating your time towards these projects or in any capacity, contact me.

“Going by the numbers of people affected, the disaster is worse than the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake combined, the U.N. says. But international aid for those disasters came at a more rapid pace, aid experts say.”

Let’s do our part to make a difference.
