Move One and Target are mobilizing efforts to bring aid to flood victims in Pakistan.
Online PR News – 17-August-2010 – – Move One and Target Logistics would like to invite our clients to help us support our humanitarian efforts to bring aid to the millions affected by devastating floods in northern and central Pakistan. The floods, one of the worst in 80 years, has already displaced as many as 15 million people and destroyed or damaged more than 600,000 homes, according to Pakistani officials.
Pakistan is in the middle of the monsoon season and torrential rains are causing flash floods and landslides that have claimed the lives of more than 1,800 people. According to Yousuf Raza Gilani, Pakistani prime minister, the disaster has caused damages worth billions of US dollars, adding, “the government is trying everything possible but it is beyond our capacity, we are facing an extremely difficult situation.” According to the UN, the floods are worse than the devastating 2004 tsunami, 2005 earthquake, and the Haiti earthquake in January.
Entire villages have been wiped out, leaving millions in dire need of food and clean water supplies. The Pakistani government and other aid organizations are scrambling to provide several displaced persons with food items, blankets, water-proof tents, medicines and other basic necessities.
Move One has joined Target Logistics’ relief effort to deliver disaster aid packages to victims of the flood. Each package, costing US $30, is made to last a household for approximately one week. It contains staple food items such as oil, lentils, sugar, salt, flour, rice etc. Together, the two companies have pledged 1000 packages – meeting half the targeted goal of US $50,000 – but would need assistance in providing more. As such, we are asking all of our clients, readers and partners to kindly support our efforts in raising funds to provide much needed aid to those affected.
We implore you to help our cause, as your contribution will bring new hope to those whose lives have been shattered by the floods.
