PAF Museum update

It is 1:00am and I have just returned from volunteers effort at the PAF Relief Camp, I must say it is organized chaos. During my 4 hours there I can honestly say I must have seen thousands of helping hands come across my face, each and every person was on his own behalf, working for only PAKISTAN, no ghunda gardi, no Badmashi, just Patriotic Pakistanis at work.

Cars have been pouring in non-stop brim full with relief goods. It almost appears as if they simply emptied out their closets and came running to PAF to hand it over to the relief agencies. The aid collected is literally mountains high and is slowly being organized and packed into trucks.

On my exit at around 12:30 it was heartening to see hundred of cars still wanting to drop of the aid and the line literally stretched all the way down to Shahrah Faisal, I wonder how long will it take for the pressure to die down.

Hats off to you Pakistanis, a job well done, keep up the spirit and believe in Pakistan. It is a perfect example how every individual of Pakistan can make a difference, and no problem is insurmountable. This event should later be used to promote patriotism amongst Pakistani, we can learn from this catastrophe.

    It’s so amazing! I just saw an update on ARY, though, and it looked pretty chaotic – but it was good to see so many people just zealously working.

    just want to know: what is needed at this point? how do volunteers learn what to do? what’s happening next?

    I am moving some people into action, but wanna know exactly what’s needed at this point.

    P.s. been too frantically busy to reply to your mail. Working to organize oversees funding and street-level collection.

    I have been there too and tried my little best to contribute. what is needed right now is organisation. Although the base people tried to manage and sort out the goods in proper way….but the response is so overwhelming that its very hard to manage all the stuff. What is needed is to organise all the volunteers and make them aware that each item is precious and need speical care. It would be very good if volunteers assign some one among themselves to take a lead and make sure that the stuff is taken care smoothly.

    maybe start shifting supplies to camps of other reliable agencies too, so that load on PAF camp gets low

    It is really a great time when we can see real Pakistan. I do admire the efforts of all the people who are working – just keeping in mind that Pakistanis need Pakistanis.
