Flood Aid Pakistan

Pakistan hit by one of the history’s worst disaster ever. Indeed due to our current government credibility we find ourselves in quite restricted and isolated environment to receive any type of Aid from any country. In the beginning of this disaster our president was on a trip to Europe , where he was highly criticized. Our Political parties were not serious as they were to be , regarding this issue. However, after few days we just came up with this conclusion , that we really are in trouble.

When we started to raise voices , no one was coming out for contribution , no one was even assured of any transparent system for relief operation. But at the end , United Nation President visits Pakistan and appeal to the whole world. Meanwhile the first aircraft carrying aid of Saudi Arabia landed.

  • USA Flood Aid Diverted to Reconstruction

Now when the disaster still continuous, USA have decided to divert their flood aid of $ 7.5 Billion for reconstruction in Pakistan after this flood.  Stating that Pakistan is receiving sufficient funds from all over the world , and up to now they are pretty much impressed the way all things handled.

  • Loan of 3 Billion Dollars under consideration , should we take this loan?

In regard of this disaster,  the Asian Development Bank and the World Bank have also agreed to give loan worth three billion dollars ($ 3 Billion)   to Pakistan. Now , we must be very conscious taking more Loan , cause we have already been stuck into IMF (INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND) Loan.

  • Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia is leading for contributing in this flood relief in terms of providing products and funding till now. They not just have announced but they are providing timely. Shah Abdullah himself contributed a huge amount , and also urged his nation to fund Pakistan.

  • China

China announced that it increased its flood relief assistance for Pakistan by an additional nine million dollars. China has already contributed relief worth ten million dollars.

In the recent weeks six aircraft sorties have delivered tents, blankets, generators, water purifiers, food items, bottled drinking water and medicines to flood affected areas in Pakistan.

This assistance will help provide 10,000 tents.

  • United Kingdom

Sahara Trust of famous singer Abrar-ul-haq has actually collected Rs. 20 Million from a Pakistani community in Manchester alone. Whereas, Government have announced it would distribute 6 million pounds though UNICEF in PAKISTAN flood. Uk have actually increased their amount from 3 million pounds to 6 million.

Now we are more concerned to see this aid substantially in the form of happy people which were to be victimized by merciless flood. We are more concerned that each penny should be put to the right place. If this not happens , then we might have lost the lust of Nation.
