A humble request

My friend Shenaaz who worked in Pakistan over the summer has created a Relief Tent Drive for her friends working with NGOs in Pakistan to purchase local supplies and the much needed tents.

Normal donations are right now blocked by red tape and logistics on the groundWith the piercing cold and soon approaching snow, time is of the essence . She will be arranging the first wire transfer by mid week - so please donate now right
here, and help to spread the word.

From BBC: Tents crisis hits quake victims. Also from The Times Online Bank red tape stops British cash reaching quake victims

I have been really busy with Ramadhan related activities & have been unable to blog. Will be back soon....
