Inshallah will donate to this. Trust IK and Sania Mirza.

Also US just announced a whopping million dollars of donation. Inshallah IK raises orders of magnitude more than this pittance.
bhai ap ka crush ho ga shoaib malik ki wife per, but the efforts are being led by Sania Nishtar. :p:
Dil kay arman aansoon main beh gaye.

Former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan appeals to Pakistanis for flood donations.


ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) has decided to approach Islamabad High Court (IHC) for the live-telecast of former prime minister Imran Khan’s international telethon for flood victims, scheduled to be held on Monday night (today).
The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) last week had imposed a ban on broadcasting live speeches of PTI Chairman Imran Khan on all satellite TV channels over his controversial remarks against police officials and a woman judge.

The sources said on Sunday that PTI will file an application in the IHC on Monday (today) to seek directives for live telecast of his telethon to raise funds for flood victims.

Imran will hold an international telethon on Monday night from 9.30 to 12pm to help the flood victims. The chief ministers of Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa will also join him.

In a video message shared on PTI’s official Twitter handle, Imran appealed to the people including overseas Pakistanis to participate in the telethon on Monday and donate whatever they can.

He added that donations will be managed by his former aide on social protection, Sania Nishtar and will be distributed across all flood-affected areas of the country.

Historic monsoon rains and flooding have affected more than 30 million people over the last few weeks across the country. The destruction of infrastructure and breakdown in communication links adds to the difficulties faced by the authorities in rescue and relief efforts in the region.

The government has called upon the international community to help as it struggles to cope with the aftermath of torrential rains that have triggered massive floods, killing nearly 1,000 people.

On Friday during his visit to the flood-hit areas of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Imran announced the construction of 10 more dams in the province to avoid the recurrence of the devastation caused by the ongoing super deluge in the province.
Imran visited Dera Ismail Khan and Tank districts and interacted with the flood victims at a relief camp set up at the Ratta Kulachi Sports Complex. Accompanied by K-P Chief Minister Mahmood Khan, the former PM reviewed the relief and rehabilitation activities in the affected areas.

Lets put our petty squabbles aside and help our country brothers and sisters in need.
As they say one can't buy class with the money never mind the looted from our own nation hence donkey's are always going to stay donkey's regardless.
There is a huge trust deficit between our most of the country folks and the army generals in most spheres of life at the moment. Any army or Nora/Zardari brigade run fund collecting organizations can't be trusted going by their bank balances. Imran track record is in front of us and he had the experience from the previous campaigns so I will only be calling his number rest can play the violin in vain.

I will donate to IK fund, and not to PDM or army, they cannot be trusted.

I will also send some money via Imran Khan's charity call .... Only a donkey will trust their money with Zardari Mullah Diesel Maryam PDM!.... And even the animal donkey will have second thoughts....

Does anyone know how to donate from outside of Pakistan? Is there an option to pay by credit card?

Pakistani Site: donate.edhi.org (Using Credit card)
The US version of site was giving me form problems (which charges in Dollar) but the URL above works for Pakistani Site, it charges in Rupees

I verified the bank reports was charged the converted amount correctly 100% functional

or Wait for Imran Khan's Telethon / likely they will setup a online system as well


Typically the online system becomes available with in first 4-5 days
Or they will announce tomorrow how to donate via Imran Khan , Charity for Flood Victims

You were just fine starting off with "Lets put our petty squabbles aside and help our country brothers and sisters in need.", but then the tangent you took is in bad taste.

I fully support and trust the army and its efforts (more than any other org, individual or political party) to help those affected by the floods. My donations have already gone in.

It is outright shameful and despicable for anyone to even question the army in these matters of national disasters for their disgustingly petty politics at a time like this.

So instead of critiquing, just do your bit and stop throwing shade at others. IK isn't the only one who cares about Pakistan!

Lets not start what you can't digest and leave it at that and you need to educate yourself before commenting.
