    An Employee at ISB airport cargo terminal writes:

    Dear All,

    Being on the Cargo Terminal ISB, we have been seeing huge inflow of
    relief goods since Sunday. We have seen around 10 special military
    planes, C130s from KHI and the scheduled PIA flights all loaded to
    capacity with relief goods. These goods mainly comprise of blankets,
    clothes, shoes, tents, tin food (but in very small quantity), water and
    un-cooked dry food items inlcuding pulses, rice, suger, oil etc.
    Yesterday, the ISB airport was full of foreign rescuers arriving from
    Germany, Polland, Turkey, France, Japan and England.

    We saw 02 trucks loaded with relief goods went off to areas in Azad
    Kashmir on sunday and believe me those trucks came back fully loaded
    again yesterday. Upon enquiring, the driver replied while crying that
    there is no body in those areas to whom relief can be supplied. We can
    see nothing but dead bodies every where. This is definitely one of the
    most unfortunate incident that we have seen and definitely should do our
    levels best to help people in whatever way we can.

    Another unfortunate incident is that sometimes muslims becomes such
    stone hearted that it becomes very hard to even call them our brother.
    Yesterday, a turkish doctor came back from Muzaffarabad and he said that
    the irony of medical stores in this area is that those people have used
    this event as a way to increase their profits. They are selling one
    tablet of Asprin for 250 rupees! Can you believe that? After going
    through an Azab-e-Ilahi, people still have the courage to do such an
    inhumane thing.

    I would like to make following requests to all:

    1. If any one of you know some pharma company, just make them a request
    that these people need basic medicines like Asprin, Paracetamol, Panadol
    etc. Please request these companies to supply such medicines free of
    cost to these areas. This is the first test that all these multinational
    companies have faced and this should also be one their social duty to
    help in such circumstances.

    2. If you guys know some textile mill, please request them for supply of
    Kafans
    (White Latha). I have talked to a few suppliers in pindi who have agreed
    to send whatever they have in their supplies free of cost. But that is
    not enough. The demand cannot be met until some textile mill comes into
    action.

    Allhamdollilah, all other items including food are already being
    despatched daily in huge quanitities. I would request whatever monetary
    help you guys are sending by the money leftover from the party, please
    send these basic medicines instead.

    Regards,

    Usman A. Khan

    Computers.
    I am planning to ship about 20 computers to Islamabad but was hoping that there may be a way to get it there fast and cheap. I can get it to Houston TX on my own, but need information on packaging requirements, and other documentation needed to get it to PAF Base Chaklala for the Patient Registration Program in the affected areas.

    Thanks.
