Help for Pakistan

The death toll in Pakistan resulting from last week's earthquake in Kashmir is now at nearly 80,000. And that number will continue to grow unless relief efforts are stepped up significantly. The UN has so far has only met 12% of its 312 million dollar relief effort appeal. In contrast, the tsunami relief fund was at 80% within ten days of the disaster.

Here is a list of relief organizations for those wishing to contribute.
