Imran Khan launches Pakistan floods appeal

Imran Khan, the cricketer-turned-politician, is launching his own emergency fundraising appeal for the victims of the devastating floods in Pakistan, pitting him directly against the government’s own efforts.

The Imran Khan Flood Relief organisation will seek to tackle both the immediate emergency and the long-term rehabilitation work required. “The government has totally collapsed, there’s no government here,” Khan told the Guardian. “The government’s efforts to raise money have totally failed because no one trusts the government.”

Khan will seek to mobilise thousands of Pakistanis behind his cause, to produce an army of volunteers to carry out the work. The floods have ravaged at least a fifth of the land mass of Pakistan and has hit 20 million people, with the waters continuing to envelop new areas.

    Asalam aleikum,

    Me & my family lives in Saint Louis and would like to organize clothing and household supply donations that can be sent to Pakistan via the PIA Cargo flights but we want to make sure the donations are utilized and distributed correctly. We are planning to organize them in boxes for Mens, Womens, children & household goods. Is there anyway that the Imran Khan foundation can collect these boxes from the PIA Cargo terminals.
    Thanks
    Dr. Aayesha Khan

    Why VISA card issued from Pakistan cannot be used. I am working in remote area of Saudi Arabia & can donate only through VISA credit card.

    As a suggestion, IKF should look into obtaining a mobile text number (generally 5 digit number) for people in US who like to donate for flood relief via texting.

    For example, 864-233 is assigned to UNICEF if anyone in US like to donate $10 by simply texting.

    Imran Khan is the man. He is one of the only few people one can donate with eyes closed because he is a man of his words. He has shown his character by building the cancer hospital, etc. May ALLAH bless him and help him carry out his mission to help humanity in need.

    I do not trust him, how he can assure that imran khan has authorized him,

    imran khan is working with MKR Foundation in Pakistan, so all funds should go there, please double check all the info..

    My company will match my donations upto $ 500. IKF is already 501c3 so its all good. After my donation i need to mail ( address ? ) a form ti IKF and somone in IKF has to fill it and send it back to my company to claim the matching gift.
    IS IKF prepared to entertain the paperwork needs?
    This can really double the donations since most of the companies in US match the donations to a certain extent.
    Please reply
    Thanks ,
