Commendable effort for earthquake victims by overseas Pakistanis

This is from the comments posted on one of the recent posts but I thought it deserved an entry by itself. As a Pakistani based overseas one can only pray and donate hoping that these donations would reach the victims of this tragedy. This particular story is of Uzra Baloch, based in New Zealand, who has organized a drive to collect donations in her North shore city. She was recently interviewed by Radio New Zealand. You can listen to the interview at the following link

On the other hand, it is really heartbreaking when you hear stories of donated items being SOLD openly in markets and aid caravans being looted :(
