Pakistan Floods: 2010

I have not said anything on these pages for the disaster that has struck Pakistan, but how can it be ignored.

Earthquakes, floods, terrorism, drone attacks, corruption, … have become recurring themes in this country.

In this flood: 20 million displaced, their homes, employment places, possessions, savings, all wiped out

Roads, bridges, whole villages, all infrastructure washed away.

The first to reach them were the Muslim organizations. Banned or not, it is they who feel they have to serve humanity.

Top politician was busy tidying up his investments and properties in the West, made from untaxed corruption, and no doubt, looking at more properties to buy from the more recently acquired percentages.

Others were also busy in their personal and family affairs.

Finally, the world wakes up, but the magnitude of the disaster is so huge, recovery will be slow, and take years.

In the meantime, shelter, food, clothing, medicine, other health care facilities, school material, … the list goes on.

More floods are forecast.

I am not going to ask people to donate. If they feel in their hearts, they will.
