Save lives by urging media to provide coverage for earthquake in South Asia

23 days after the earthquake, life seems to be getting back to normal for majority of Lahoris. People are shopping around for Eid and the usual Eid festivity is visible in bazaars and shopping malls now. But I know a lot of people are NOT celebrating Eid this year or celebrating it with saadgi.

It is extremely important that our own local media, atleast, continue to give sufficient coverage to quake affected people and their issues. This will keep on reminding people that there is still a long way to go. We must not forget that people affected by quake still need help. It’s going to take a few years before some kind of normalcy is restored there and we must continue help in any form we can.

We cannot bring back those who have died BUT together we can turn this disaster into an opportunity. Let’s give it a shot :).

A friend just sent me this email (thank you :) ) so please take a moment to read about this important issue, and join us in signing the petition. It takes just 30 seconds, but can truly make a difference. We are trying to reach 100,000 signatures – please sign here

Once you have signed, you can help even more by asking your friends and family to sign as well.
