The Lahore Metroblog posted an update from LUMS on the situation in Muzaffarabad, one highlight from it is this:

They are having issues with effective distribution but said that food can keep coming in so that they don’t run out by next week. But this has to be organised as family packs. Each pack should contain:

1) Packed, ready-to-eat roties that are available from the Dawn and other labels in super markets.
2) cooked, desi food, packed in tins (if possible)
3) candles and matches
4) Packets of milk
5) Tea leaves
6) Sugar
7) Salt
8) If cooked food is not possible, then rice, daal, chanas and some masala as well.

People, when you pack relief goods from now on, try to pack envisioning a family of 4-5 in mind. After seeing how the supplies are being distributed in the affected areas, I think it’ll be a great way to ensure that everyone gets the goods, and in an equal amount.
