Donate for Flood victims

Kindly donate something for the flood victims. The rains and floods continue and half of Pakistan is under water. You should use credit cards to donate. Please encourage your colleagues to do so. Those without a credit card can give cash to

someone with a card, and hence contribute. Be careful that you either give it to International agencies, or to Edhi. Little money is good too. 

Internationally, there is concern that donations will be used for terrorist activities. But if you donate to International agencies, through the internet, they wont. And these agencies are all foreign by origin.
