Pakistan Nationalist Association Flood Appeal

August 19, 2010

By Feroz Nabi

The Pakistan Nationalist Association’s Relief Group which has recently been created, for the first time for any disaster in Pakistan is now directly sending aid to the flood affected regions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Namely Charsadda, Nowshera, Peshawar, Mingora and Mardan. The rest of the donations will be given to other organizations such as the Red Crescent because this is the first time the Relief Group will ever be arranging anything like this.

There will be a fundraiser in all our major cities in Pakistan on the 20th of August which has been well promoted and the first group of members from the Relief Group will hopefully go to Charsadda and Peshawar nearby areas to help the people in need on the 21st. This is a late response but the Relief Group was only recently organized and created.

Foreign Chapters

A fundraiser is being organized for the 22nd of August for the victims of the floods in Pakistan for the Pakistan Nationalist Association’s, Canada, USA, Saudi Arabia, UAE and UK Chapters. In the same way a fundraiser is being organized in Italy, Norway and France on the 24th of August and many members have already joined public Pakistani organizations in Italy to help in the aid effort. Australia is hosting a large fundraising event on the 27th of August. The foreign chapters with much fewer members but members with much more money for Pakistan provide donations that are very badly needed in this time. We have absolute trust in the community because these same donations have helped run the Pakistan Nationalist Association and its thought process for all this time.

The Relief Group

The Relief Group is a new organization and it is created by Lord Zerab Salamat himself and operates from the city of Karachi. It is a recent venture but a new beginning for Nationalism. The Relief Groups only action till now has been of providing free food aid to a poorer segment of society in Karachi and that has been a very small operation to no more than 50 people who are provided with basic items such as flour, salt, sugar and milk every week.

Please understand that this appeal for donations does not mean we are demanding that the donations be given only to the Pakistan Nationalist Association Relief Group but will also understand if the donations go to a local NGO with a good reputation for relief work and without any embezzlement of funds.

Also the Relief Group is still new and its capabilities will be tested for the first time in reality. There is still more that the organization needs in management so if there is anyone who is good at managing people they should make contact with the organization immediately.

The Relief Group has a very solid system of checks and balances. Every transaction will be recorded and the way the money is spent will be watched very efficiently. The Nationalists have always been enemies of corruption trying our level best to punish people who have spread it and we will make sure that it is especially not allowed in the Relief Group. Four witnesses and two others will be present along with documents when money is involved and at least two people must be there to record every single transaction in order to avoid errors and corruption. This process will continue even when the food, blankets, tents and other aid is being handed over to keep a check.
