Subject: Indus Flood note from Kanak

Hello Sree, I think it is important to try heighten sensitivity to the Indus Flood 2010 and the ongoing devastation in Pakistan. People in India in particular may find it difficult to send money across the border, and this Nepal-based facility could be useful. If at all possible, please consider spreading work on this facility we have put up, as a means of support. Your support and that of SAJA would be invaluable.

Kanak Mani Dixit, Editor, Himal Southasia,


Himal Southasian fund collection drive
in partnership with Standard Chartered Bank Nepal

The floods raging through Pakistan at the moment have affected more people than the 2005 Kashmir earthquake, the 2006 Asian tsunami, and the 2010 Haiti earthquake combined.

Himal Southasian and Standard Chartered Bank Nepal have set up a fund in Kathmandu for people from Southasia and elsewhere seeking to support the ongoing relief efforts in Pakistan. Please avail this facility to send money to the victims of flood along the Indus. No administrative charges will be applied to your support; every paisa will be transferred to trusted organisations in Pakistan for the benefit of the flood victims.
