Music for Relief is asking for your support to help more than half a million people displaced by flooding in Pakistan.

Monsoon rains have caused the worst flooding in Pakistan in 80 years, submerging roads and bridges and cutting off survivors from critical supplies of medicine, food and clean water.  20 million people have been affected more than the number of people affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, and the 2010 Haiti earthquake combined.

890,000 homes destroyed, and 2.6 million acres of crop lands are under water.  With their homes and livestock destroyed, millions of families have had their lives turned upside down.  Displaced families are camping on roadsides.  Many lack shelter, food, and clean water.

MFR is partnering with the UN Refugee Agency to help provide shelter and life-saving aid to millions of people in need.

Their goal is to reach and serve 560,000 survivors, but we need your ongoing support.

As you may or may not know, Pakistan has a special place in my heart. Since learning about them for Model UN when I was a freshman, I have come to truly realize how unique and special they are. It would really mean a lot to me if you could help them out.

Here are two ways you can help:

Funds Request: Make a donation to help victims of the Pakistan Floods today. Go to www.musicforrelief.org/donate to make a contribution.  100% of your donations will help survivors in Pakistan; MFR is matching individual donations up to $10,000 for this recovery effort.

Action: Or support MFR’s Pakistan Flood Relief on Socialvibe.com. Go to http://www.socialvibe.com/musicforrelief and complete the activities.  Even if you are unable to make a financial donation, you can help those affected by the Floods on Socialvibe.com.  To start earning donations for the victims, support Music for Relief on SocialVibe.

Note: Not all of this post was written by me, some of it was written by Grace, a marketing intern for Music for Relief. But like I said, it’s not about who writes it, but about helping people.
