Lamia Al Sari | 10 years ago | Reply Calling the donation of the Bill and Malinda Gates Foundation "peanuts" is so typical of some of my Pakistani friends. Please be thankful for all donations by non-Muslims. At this time Pakistan can't afford to be a "chooser" . All Pakistanis who are safe and dry in their homes, should come together and donate one-fifth of their assets as one-fifth of the country is submerged under water. IT IS YOUR MORAL RESPONSIBILITY TO SAVE YOUR COUNTRY FROM THE BRINK OF DISASTER. OTHERS ARE HELPING OUT BECAUSE OF THEIR HUMAN GOODNESS...THEY ARE IN NO WAY OBLIGED. A concerned non-Pakistani.
