Deborah,“Pockets of starvation” is how one group described it.

Eighty percent who fled the violence in Pakistan have found an open door at the barren homes of relatives, but are still closed off from emergency food, water and medicines.

The needs are enormous.  Most have escaped with nothing.

But now, aid agencies are staring at the very harsh reality that they may have to shut down their Pakistan relief efforts due to a severe lack of funding.

World Refugee Day is just three days away.  It’s a day when we ask the world to turn its attention to some of the most vulnerable people. And to help where there are urgent needs.

donateWe’re almost halfway to our goal of raising $10,000 to generate lifesaving assistance for displaced Pakistanis.

Help us reach our goal. Donate before June 20.

Yesterday I testified before Congress and spoke to them about the urgent needs in Pakistan.  Today, the European Union has pledged 20 million Euros in support of aid efforts.  These are signs of progress in what seems a bleak landscape.  But we must do so much more.

Join our fight to protect innocent victims of violence in Pakistan.

Sincerely,

Kenneth H. Bacon
President, Refugees International
