Helping in Pakistan

Just received this email... Remember that even small amounts can help.


Thanks for your e-mail. I think I should give you a little menu of options for your money. I am able to deliver funds directly to individual families if you would like that. However there are other options also that I would like to send your way.

1. Kunar Christian Hospital (as seen on - They are a great hospital that is in need of real funding due to the fact that they need to rebuild the entire hospital at the same time as they are treating patients etc. (they have no international organized funding)

2. Samaritan's Purse - They are an awesome Christian organization that does some serious hardcore field work. They got here about two weeks ago and are taking over water purification and sanitation in all the camps and also will be a part of the rebuilding process. They are funded for three months but will need on going funds to continue their important work. I know the project director personally. She grew up in Pakistan also and is the real thing. Donating to this group would be tax deductible. (ear mark any funds you send them specifically for the Pakistan earthquake, through Kristen Perett)

3. Leprosy hospital. This is run by a group of under funded evangelical nuns (German protestant) who have been here for over 30 years. Their clinic in Balakot was completely destroyed and all of their local staff was killed! They need real help financially.

If you are interested in making a donation, feel free to email me or Trevor directly.
