Please Help Pakistan Earthquake Victims if You Can

International relief groups estimate over 40,000 people died in Pakistan as a result of the

5 million Pakistani Quake Victims Need Immediate Help From: "Jenny M., Care2 Human Rights Alerts" humanrights@care2.com

Dear Friend,

International relief groups estimate over 40,000 people died in Pakistan as a result of the
earthquake. Without adequate food, water, and shelter many of the people who survived the initial
destruction will succumb to the elements. Please donate now to help critical relief efforts.

That is exactly what happened last Friday in Pakistan when a 7.7 magnitude earthquake devastated the region. Only there, in the remote villages of the Hindu Kush without modern construction or
stringent building codes, buildings simply collapsed and buried thousands beneath the rubble.
And now the survivors need your help!

Can you help provide food, water, and shelter to the people of Pakistan who have lost everything?
The earthquake that ripped through the ancient villages of Pakistan's Hindu Kush mountains left
people completely exposed to the elements. Rain and hail are coming as winter approaches, and
emergency help is needed so badly. Help Mercy Corps save as many people as possible by donating here:

Care2 is working to support the efforts of Mercy Corps relief workers in Pakistan right now. These
workers are preparing the first shipments of lifesaving medical supplies for distribution. Mercy
Corps has assembled mobile medical teams made up of doctors, nurses and surgeons to provide
critical trauma care to those in need.

"It's horrific," says Dr. Arif Noor, a Pakistan-based doctor with Mercy Corps. According to Dr.
Noor, many small settlements in the mountain valleys have been completely washed away. Some
people are fleeing their leveled villages carrying the dead and wounded with them. Many others are
staying behind, unsure of whether missing family members are dead or alive. People are intensely
fearful of aftershocks, staying outside in open areas through the winter nights that bring torrential
rains and hailstorms.

Care2 partnered with Mercy Corps to provide desperately needed relief to tsunami victims last
winter, as well as to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, and are proud to be working together once
again to bring relief to people in need. Please donate today to support these critical relief efforts.
Mercy Corps is coordinating relief efforts with the United Nations and other relief organizations
that are a part of this critical lifesaving response. "This disaster is beyond the scope of one
government, or many governments," says Dr. Arif Noor.

"Now is the time for the world to join hands and come together with this terrible tragedy." Please
help us today by making an immediate donation.
