Help!

Mobilink and Ufone customers can now help their calamity-stricken brethren by texting DONATE to the number 436. A paltry sum of Rs. 3 will be deducted from the balance and will be donated to the earthquake relief fund. For that matter people residing in Karachi can take up their donations to the PAF Museum's parking lot. It would be a lot better if you can take supplies rather than money. Different companies have put up stalls their and are selling their products at a discounted rate. If you do take money, prefer to purchase something from there and give it to the relief people. PIA is also arranging relief efforts. You can deposit your goods at the nearest PIA center. Camps are also set up at all the Edhi centers. You can also help being online, just visit HelpPakistan and click on any of the advertisements. All the revenue generated from the ads there would be donated to the relief fund. But be cautious, and don't go overboard in helping your friends. A few clicks too many from the same IP would alert the Google people and they would shut the whole thing up, rendering the effort useless. Donate, help them in any way you can. Maybe this would be the only worthwhile thing we would do in our entire lives!

InshALLAH it will get better. The way the whole nation has rallied around this problem, it will only get better from now on.

Hurrah Pakistan!
