Community starts sending relief goods to Pakistan

06/09/2009 12:07 AM | Staff Report

Dubai: The Pakistani community in the UAE has started sending relief goods to Pakistan to help internally displaced persons (IDP) there.

"We are personally going to Pakistan to disperse donations amongst the deserving families living in the camps," said Abdul Sattar Pardesi, a prominent social worker and philanthropist in Dubai.

He said that he would lead a three member delegation to Pakistan to provide help to the victims of the Swat conflict.

"We are planning to disperse aid in cash to families so they can utilise the cash according to their needs. We know the government, aid groups and individuals are helping the IDPs providing them with food, clothes and other items of daily use."

The delegation will also comprise Iqbal Dawood, a leading Dubai-based businessman and social worker and Mian Muneer.

He said the Pakistan business community would donate more than Dh100,000 in cash. He also requested community members to come forward and donate.

More than three million people have fled their homes since the Pakistan military launched its offensive against Taliban militants in the Malakand Division in April. While the majority of IDPs have taken refuge with relatives and friends, more than half a million have been living in camps.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Association in Dubai has also started sending relief goods to the camps.

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has offered to carry relief goods free of charge to help the IDPs at the instructions of the Pakistan government.

Dr Saeed Khan Mahmoud, Consul General of Pakistan, said that cash donations can be deposited in the Prime Minister's Special Fund for Victims of Terrorism at United Bank Limited and Habib Bank Limited in the UAE. People who want to send relief goods can contact the consulate.

He said that items which are immediately required are: life saving drugs, medical kits, powdered milk, tea, sugar, dates, high energy biscuits, generators, tents, pedestal fans, water coolers, mosquito nets and hygiene kits.

People can also donate at the Pakistan Association in Dubai, which has set up camp to collect relief goods.
