    We are watching different T.V talk-shows/programs now a days on different TV channels regarding provocation of helping and sympathetic sentiments among the people of Pakistan for 1/5 flood effected people of Pakistan.But most of them end on the common and vague statements of the invited guests.These statements are not effected enough to instigate 80% the ordinary people to help rather these statements knock the door of old and conventional unsolvable problems of Pakistan which is not the need of the hour.Moreover these programs,anchorpersons and the guests only speak to the 20% educated,rich and elite class of Pakistan that’s why the ratio of help is too low and the the target is not being achieved.
    What should T.V channels do on the eve is to arrange a direct and humble appeal from the most popular personalities and icons of Pakistan because there words are not only carefully listened but these are also credible and precious enough to be acted upon by the masses of Pakistan.In these personalities Dr. Abdulqadeer Khan(the founder of Nuclear and Atomic Pakistan) Abdusattar Edhi& Family(A holy social workers family),Ansar Burny(A socialworker),Javed Miandad(World fame crickter),Owais raza Qadri( A world reknown Naat Khawan) and some more.
    The people can be motivatd by the famous character of the the most popular drama series of the history like Andhera Ujala,Sona Chandi,Rahen and comedy actors like Sohail Ahmed,Baboo Baral,Anwer Ali,Ali Ejaz and many more and the pioneers of Pakistan Drama Like Abid Ali,Uzma Gilani,Khayyam Serhadi,Firdos Jamal, and my name is raimbo raimbo Jan Raimbo( Muhammad Afzal) and may more.
    All above should not be invited in any program or a talk- show but say direct and strong appeals in short time appearances and in the same outfit and characters as they were seen and liked by the people of Pakistan,on TV Channels for the help of flood stricken people of Pakistan.

    i would suggest this very old song of 1947 keeping also islamic wordings can roar

    please see this you tube

    You are doing a great job. I want to request your channel and media sources to please also shed light on the services of other NGO’s in the relief operation…such as Edhi, Ansar Burney Trust, Al-Khidmat, etc…Your sources must appreciate all those groups who are working enthusiastically for the flood victims. This way people would be more encouraged and contribute more…
    Pakistan has badly affected by flood and lots and lots of collective effort is required.

    Besides, also encourage and motivate people to keep on donating after Eid as well.

    Wish you all the best,

    Every year the Government of Pakistan, increase pay of its servants in the form of allowances. Is it justified to increase pay of an officer who is already getting 50000 or more? In a poor country where people are dying of hunger and poverty, a pay in a range of 50000 is sufficient to quench needs of single family. Those officers whose salary has touched a certain limit should either pay more tax or there should be no further increase in their salaries.
    I suggest that compulsory tax should be administered to all such officers. The tax money thus obtained should be given to flood affected people or young people should be employed so that each one gets opportunity and benefit to serve Pakistan. Recommend

    We would like to inform you that already 2 causalities have been noticed in that camp.
    There is need of support, before eid in month of ramzan they were getting food from peoples now it is too hard to get food and other basic needs.
    There are more than 30 families from Taluka Qubo Saeed Khan and Taluka Jacobabad, they have 77 children in that camp, one child was died on eid day and one female is heart patient under treatment.
    Our volunteers have been found one kid from the flood affected areas (unconscious and poor condition) of Taluka Qubo Saeed Khan, his age is about 2 years, he was drained out in flood, that was saved from dogs and other reptiles in flood affected area, kept in one camp of shahdadkot with out volunteers, our organization took responsibility of food, medicine and other basic need till to find his parents.

    Therefore, so we are trying the best to support affectees every where as we can in our limited resources. Kindly take positive initiatives especially for the camp of dadu hospital.
