All the donated items should be properly packaged and in brand new condition.

Over 1,300 people have died and millions of people were displaced in the worst floods the South Asian country has ever seen, with a number of countries such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, the US, China and others offering support to the victims. The National Disaster Management Authority of Pakistan blamed record monsoon rains and melting glaciers in northern mountains for the floods.
