We have decided to coordinate our relief efforts through TEAM mission which has an extensive medical ministry in that area. Their hospital in Qalandarabad (situated between Abbotabad and Mansera and presently providing the only O.R. facilities in that region) and a sister hospital in Gari Habibullah lie in the midst of some of the most hard-hit areas in the country.
FEBInternational is putting together an appeal for donations which will be channelled through their relief arm, FAIR. We will channel these funds to TEAM's relief work in the north. Americans wanting to contribute can do so through WorldVenture, our sister mission in the States. The contact info for these two organizations are given below. Donations should be marked as "Pakistan Earthquake Relief."
Funds contributed will be used for immediate relief as well as for long-term rehabilitation.
