(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) A philanthropic organisation of overseas Pakistanis recently distributed relief aid in flood-hit areas of Pakistan.

Dubai-based humanitarian Mobisher Rabbani, founder of The Rabbani Foundation, visited the flooded areas of Sindh and Balochistan provinces of Pakistan. According to the latest reports, five million Pakistanis have been hit by floods that have already claimed some 400 lives, ruined tens of thousands of houses and vast swathes of crops, and forced hundreds of thousands to live in camps or under tarpaulins.

The distribution of emergency relief items was conducted by The Rabbani Foundation in collaboration with Mankind Welfare Trust UK from Jacobabad in Sindh province to Jaffarabad in Balochistan for more than a thousand families affected by the recent floods. Items included nutritious milk packets and biscuits.

"Our aim was to create awareness about this forgotten humanitarian crisis. Our work's emphasis was on the affected children - the weakest segment of the affected," said Rabbani.

The Rabbani Foundation in collaboration with Mankind Welfare Trust UK will be conducting more such distributions in the affected areas in the near future in conjunction with the government and non-government organisations operating there. The foundation is a philanthropic organisation dedicated to humanity and nation building which has conducted projects in the UAE, Sri Lanka, Palestine, the Philippines, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Mankind Welfare Trust is a UK-based progressive and dynamic non-profit organisation implementing viable economic development, educational and capacity-building programmes in Pakistan.
