Ludwigshafen, Germany – September 13, 2010 – In view of the dramatic floods in Pakistan and the difficulty for the local population to get fast help, BKG Water Solutions has decided to support Pakistan with the distribution of water purification tablets through several local humanitarian agencies, such as GOAL agency, National Rural Support Programme (NRSP), GlobalMedic and Red Crescent.
The victims of the floods still need emergency relief. For example the Irish agency GOAL is helping local Pakistani organizations to support emergency evacuation of people, deliver food, shelter aids, hygiene kits and water purification tablets to population in the north of Sindh province. The NRSP has existing office infrastructure in almost all affected districts. It has enabled to respond in both central and more remote areas. As of September 1, 2010, through its emergency rescue and relief operations, the NRSP has assisted 377,983 households in the flood affected districts of Khyber, Pakhtoonkhawa and Punjab.
We hope that the donation of BKG Water Solutions through these highly active humanitarian aid agencies will contribute helping some of those most affected.
