Please Help Pakistani Flood Victims!

I have been quite involved with helping to bring affordable, durable housing for people in need all over the world. Lately much of this effort has been focused on rebuilding in Haiti after their devastating earthquake. Now with the massive flooding in Pakistan there is a new area of concern.

I just got this email from someone on the ground there:

"You know about the flood disaster in Pakistan. I am from Tehsil Kot Addu. In Abaas Wala, where the fist river breached, there are many villages that are destroyed. They have nothing left. The southern side of Kot Adu city is also affected by the flood. I am doing work to help those affected as a volubteer with an NGo. My persional request is to please help those people. They need shelter. They are living in the open air. If you want to visit that place I can arange your visit. Help as much you can. I have just 1 request: can you please donate shelter to a few families ? If you can please contact me. Regards, Umair Murtaza Khan +92-333-6001782"

I am sure that any assistance would be greatly appreciated. You can contact Umair at
