Disaster Recovery Fund for Sindh and Punjab Province Flood

Many of you will be aware of the Flood s that have ravaged around the Sindh and Punjab Provinces and have left over 1,000,000 people homeless and destitute and 14,000 people dead.  Flood warnings still persist and panic stricken families can see no foreseeable succour to their plight as they brace themselves for another deluge in what has been termed the worst flood to hit Pakistan in 100 years.  The Indus river is still swollen and with fresh warnings of further flooding the BPCA is calling people to pray for a cessation to the current turmoil. 

The BBC provide a full storyof the needs of the people:

We are asking brothers and sister up and down the country to pray for a speedy restoration of the homes and livelihoods of the affected local people.  We ask for you to pray for calm to be restored to an area that has only recently survived fighting between the Taliban and the Pakistan army and is now faced with one of it's worst ever natural disasters.

The BPCA is raising a fund for the victims of the flooding. It is essential that the Pakistani Christian Community is ostensibly involved in the Restoration programme. By illustrating our commitment to the country we will be able to show the nation of Pakistan that we too care for the land of our forefathers and that Christians and other faiths have to work in cooperation to make Pakistan a place of peace, unity and hope. 

Christ taught us in his parable of the Samaritan that we should care for people of all faiths, all creeds, all colours and other diversities.  The money raised will not be used in any projects that are singularly for the benefit of the Christian community but will be used in generic, inclusive projects.

If you would like to donate to the BPCA Flooding Relief fund you can do so in the following ways:

Cheques should be made payable to the British Pakistani Christian Association and sent to:

57 Green Lane
Ilford
Essex
IG1 1XG

Alternatively, please pay funds directly into the BPCA account:

Sort Code:             20 67 90 
Account Number:  63468976

Please ask your bankers to put on a reference of Flood/DRF

A full report detailing funds raised and how they are utilised will be regularly published on our blog.
