PAKISTAN FLOOD RELIEF
The numbers are undoubtedly overwhelming: more than 10 million people affected, many having lost their homes, possessions, livelihood – perhaps irretrievably. Equally staggering are the figures quoted in the Press for the dollar amounts requested by the UN and offered by governments around the world.
In the face of all this, it is natural for us as individuals to feel stunned and wonder what we can possibly do to help.
Yet as the days pass, another story begins to emerge from amid the devastation—one of human beings simply helping each other in times of need. As one report from the BBC noted today, the immediate response has been from local people in villages across the country, helping their friends and family.
Each donation is a meaningful outreach from the human family. It’s not about the size; it’s about being a part of the effort. With your help, TPRF is joining with groups around the world in a concerted effort to bring relief as quickly and effectively as possible.
TPRF has received several worthy grant applications, and expects to make its first grant(s) in the next few days. Please stay tuned. Henrique Pinto through The Prem Rawat Foundation
