The Pakistan Flooding: Connecticut Stands Ready to Aid Flood Victims
Once again, the United States of America – bolstered by the unwavering support of states like Connecticut – stand ready to provide much-needed relief to victims of the latest world tragedy: the flooding in Pakistan. This is the worst flooding Pakistan has seen since 1929, resulting in over 1,100 deaths and about one million survivors in Pakistan who need our help.
I am making an appeal to all Connecticut residents and businesses to once again show support for those in dire need – this time, the people of Pakistan. Below are links to USAID and InterAction “A United Voice for Global Change” where you can find the latest news on how the U.S. is helping the people of Pakistan, particularly in Khybert Paktunkhwa and the Federally-Administered Tribal Areas. Also included is a link tot he contact information for many humanitarian organizations we know of that are accepting donations to help conduct effective, long-term relief operations.
You can also text “SWAT” to 50555 to make a $10 donation that will be dedicated to helping displaced families in Pakistan.
As Governor, I am urging the people of this caring and compassionate state to join me showing Connecticut cares. Here’s how:
