This is a time when the entire country has to pull together and save the City of Lights. The urban flooding in Karachi has devastated both the rich and poor, and what we see on the internet is only a small percentage of it. There are those colonies and slums that have been swept away by the rain – leading to major structural damages, power outages and little room to breathe.
Our country has been through several natural calamities together -especially the devastating earthquakes, and more than the government, the people have always come together to lend a helping hand. This time is no different.
We have compiled a list of organisations that are working diligently towards helping the flood affectees in Karachi. Here is a list of the ones you can and should donate to NOW – please remember that they need your help now more than ever before:
