hey, up north they need tents DESPERATELY. In lahore they are out of tents in most places. if anyone knows of a place where they are being sold please tell. also if u have any idea of a place to get tents made then tell also

Nestle is taking the plastic advertisements they use on buildboards to get tents made from them, since the materials waterproof. This is a good idea. please pass it on to other companies or give more ideas for making tents.

I personally don’t know of any places here that might be able to help….any ideas anyone? Tents would be crucial, especially with the winter coming along. What about improvising by asking shadi caterers?

    a friend told me she’s sending a truck with tents purchased from ‘akbari’ market/mandi. How about those toy tents, they’re a bit expensive and a bit small, but they ARE waterproof, and we can get somewhat more expensive tents at sports and camping goods shops.

    Many people have dugged more into this tents thing. No doubt tents are very improtant. Following is the information from Lahore, I have.

    Due to so many donor buyers, it takes some time to manufacture large numbers, and because of that these vendors are not very keen on answering each and every call. I am sharing as it might help someone sometime, and especially if we can make a steering group which takes

    orders from all over Lahore and then passes on fewer BIG orders to the manufacturers.

    Recommended = Refugee Tents 4 x 4 (Meters)

    i am also organising plastic sheets 150 feet long and 14 feet wide to be trucked up to mansera on saterday to faisal edhi , where he will have them sent where ever needed, and to be flown to bagh on saterday along with tents, so they can be delivered personally to the army relief camp in bagh by my husband. his cousins have suffered terrible damage and tragedy along with so many others. any one interwested is welcome to send more tents or rolls of plastic sheets, shoes , matches and or blankets with him. at least u know they will get there soon. god bless.
