Manitobans are Fundraising Money to Help Pakistanis Families After the Harsh Floodings Hit the Country

Pakistan is facing a tough time right now due to the heavy rainfalls that resulted in “catastrophic flash flooding” all over the country. The reports said that over a thousand people died, and more than thirty-three million people are homeless and need immediate aid. Many families lost their shelters and in-need water, food and medicine.

Moreover, the Manitoba Islamic Association has decided to fundraise approximately a hundred thousand dollars to help Pakistanis families overcome this crisis.

The Manitoba Islamic Association commented, “Your support today can help save lives.” Hundreds of Manitobans have gathered in the Grand Mosque in Waverly to help support this fundraiser, “anyone can help,” and the amount donated doesn’t have to be significant. People can donate online on the Manitoba Islamic Association website and all the other online fundraisers.

A volunteer in the event commented on this by saying, “There’s still a lot of people that don’t understand the depth of how devastating [this] is,” Many Winnipeggers have family members in Pakistan. They are apprehensive because of this crisis.

“It’s tough to watch those images. I grew up in that country, and I have friends who were impacted or their families [have] been impacted by this flood. Many Winnipeggers have rallied to help fundraise food, medicine and water for Pakistan, calling for more aid. This is a humanitarian effort … doesn’t matter what part of the world we live in, or where we come from, we’re just helping another human being,” said a Winnipegger about the devastating floods in Pakistan.

All Canadians can help by donating to the fundraising events, such as Manitoba Islamic Association, Canada Helps, International Development and Relief Foundation (IDRF), etc., and it doesn’t have to be a lot of money; everyone can donate a little bit, and hopefully, in the end, there will be a massive sum of money to aid all Pakistanis.
