We need your help now please!
World Zoroastrian Organisation has come forward to try and help some of the millions of victims of the devastating flood in Pakistan.
Many have already donated, many are collecting funds to help in various ways. We have decided to assist SIUT Trust, a recognized and respected organisation whose primary care in normal times is in the department of Urology & Transplantation. Check www.siut.org
SIUT have set up camps in all four provinces of Pakistan as of 5th August, having their medical teams dealing with the treatment of gastroenteritis, skin diseases, malaria, and pneumonia in children. Snake and scorpion bites, heat stroke, were other medical problems attended to. It is a matter of time before cholera becomes another issue. Edhi Foundation has generously donated ambulances in the camps and PIA have given free logistic of goods for medical relief camps. Over 35,000 have been assisted till yesterday, 22nd August.
WZO are of the opinion that in this disaster medical attention is of paramount importance, if one has the luxury of choice! The rain has far from abated, or the torrent of the rivers, and no doubt worse is still to come.
The progress will be monitored and if medical relief becomes less of an urgency, we will divert your donations wherever required.
Do share this with your friends, Pakistan needs as much assistance as humanly possible.
