Collection Drive for IDP Relief team to Swat

UN estimates there are 980,000 people being displaced out of NWFP – there is tremendous suffering and a severe lack of funds and Volunteers.

IDP's scrambling for food in SWATFacebook Event – Collection / Donation appeal for IDP’s in SWAT
I plan to lead a team to the affected areas hopefully to depart from Karachi on the 18th of May 2009 to take the collected donation items personally into the region of Mardan and physically distribute the items only to the needy and suffering.

We are interested in anything that you can contribute. We are hoping to pre-pack the collected items into small handy packages so as to distribute items to each individual person. The small packages will help us avoid hoarders who made even the 2005 Earthquake a business.

Please Please do not donate old/expired stuff. Make sure edible items are hygienic and properly packed.

  • Most Important things Pedestal Fans, Tents, Mattress.
  • Utensils: Jerri cans (large plastic cans that hold 20 liters of water or other liquids), Crockery, Buckets
  • Toiletries: Tissues, Soaps, Dettol (antibacterial cleaners), Towels
  • Food: Rice [3 kg pack], Wheat [3kg pack], Sugar [1 kg pack], Tea [1 box each], Variety of Daals [1 kg each], Milk [in tetra packs or powder], Safe drinking water


  1. Most important thing is Anti Mosquito sprays
  2. Water purification tablets.
  3. Life Saving drugs.
  4. Vaccines for malaria, cholera, typhoid, influenza.
  5. Pain killers including strong ones like morphine derivatives, tremadol, pethadine, kinz .
  6. Antibiotics e.g. tetnus, amoxil, gentamycin.
  7. IV cannulas
  8. IV Drip sets
  9. IV drips: normal saline, ringerlactate
  10. Local anesthetics (injections)
  11. Cotton bandages, cotton.
  12. Surgical instruments: e.g needle holders, forceps, tweezers.
  13. Suturing materials, Skin staples.

Just think about it that if you live in tent then which kind of things you need there so buy it and donate it.

    I think having female members in relief aid squads would be of great help as the females of the poor pashtuns would be more strict regarding hijab/pardah and hence distribution (and possibly other matters such as first aid etc) etc would be of help.

    But even if you can't go, that would be ok I guess. Like many other females you can go from door to door in your own city and collect donations. I think it would be the most easiest-yet-highly-useful way of helping our brothers and sisters.

    Al-khidmat Foundation is really doing the best of its utmost efforts for the Swat and Malakand IDPs and this is not only for camera show but with the realy spirit of sacrifice for the humanity and to be rewarded hereinafter and solely for the sake of Allah Subhanuhu wa Taalaa. We must support them to fulfil our obligation towards our belived country in this tough time of need. This is the time when the realy muslims will be judged that how much they could spare for their displaced persons.

    I belong to Saadat family of village Pir Baba, District Buner, NWFP which is the main war effected area. My father after a struggle of 40 long years could hardly establish a very small business and a village house which all ruined in this war and my entire family has been displaced from Buner to Rawalpindi and currently I am the only person who is taking care of almost 12 people (3 Families) I didn’t have sufficient space to provide them a proper shelter and other necessities of life.

    We have lost every thing including our house hold, our cattle and a small piece of cultivated land & now on urgent basis we need 3 number of Mattress (bedding foams) and 2 number of pedistal fans.

    it is requested to provide me possible assistance as it is very hard to meet the two ends and to provide even basic necessities of life like food and shelter to my family. As an effectee of terrirorism I will expect a good favor from you people.

    Hope that your good self will take an immediate action and will help me. I will be very much thankful, obliged and will pray for you forever.

    Kind Regards,

    Amir Zeb
