This is Angelina Jolie, The Goodwill Ambassador of UNHCR.....and a world known 34 years old actress.
She visited the Pakistan on 7 September 2010 for three days.
"It's clear this crisis is far from over," she said. "People have lost everything: their homes, their belongings, their crops and cattle, and their livelihoods. Long after the cameras have gone, people will be struggling to rebuild their lives."
"One problem does not negate the other, one headline should not pull focus from the many complexities of the situation in Pakistan," said the Goodwill Ambassador, stressing the need for continuing efforts to support those in need.
But this is not the only person working for Pakistan. There are lot of other people who are using their individual capacity to work for displaced due to the recent flood in Pakistan.
One among them is Dr Hina, Urooj, Rizwan and Komal...along with other friends.
Though they didn't named their group yet but Urooj has developed a new blog for their activities which you can follow on the link : http://helpingfloodvictims.blogspot.com/
And I after reading and following their activities would say that what Urooj has said about her blog could be best suited name for their group too...... Friends Indeed !
Yes...they are the Friends Indeed who always welcome friends in need.....Good thing about their group is...they have not only the male doctors but female doctors too. They carry not only the food but medicine too.
I just met Urooj and happy to hear about their recent activities...as both Rizwan and Urooj told me about their future plans....
They want funding and resources to make rehabilitation plans and to give shelters(ready made tents) which can serve as a short term home until they can go back to their own lands.
My beloved husband has agreed to help Urooj and her team to get their small - self made NGO registered with Pakistan Government so that they can expand their activities.
I have nothing much to offer to her....for which I felt sorry....but I promised her to promote and to find someone to provide us TENTS.
I hope best for Urooj and others in Friends Indeed team and wish them all the luck.
