It does so with the objective of promoting the identity of Pakistan.














Support Swat IDPs







As you are all aware, the military operation of the Pakistan government against the Taliban in the Swat region has caused over two million people to flee from their homes. These displaced people are in urgent need of resources and support in order to survive. Major humanitarian agencies say that the present lack of funding is threatening relief efforts, and the people are in severe distress. Alhamdulillah we all have the opportunity and the means to mitigate their suffering. The 2.3 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) need to be provided with basic necessities such food, clothing, tents, water, and healthcare, and they need your help. You can make a difference by supporting the many organizations already there on the ground working day and night to take care of the deluge of refugees pouring in. Most notable among them are:
