Paksef in collaboration with SARelief and several others on the ground in Pakistan have launched a campaign to collect funds and supplies for the Internally Displaced Persons of Swat Valley and the wider Northern Area’s of Pakistan.

We’ve pledged to raise $15,000 in the first round ending May 31st, 2009. Donations are being collected by Paksef, a California based non-profit organization registered under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code (EIN# 20-2950808).

Funds will go towards purchasing and distribution of Food, Medicines, and tents for the displaced people. For details to where the funds will be usedclick here.

Up until now we have crossed contributions to support 530 families – almost half way to the coveted 1200 – lets spread the word and make a difference.

Rs 3000 per family or a mere $37 per hamper.
