This year, monsoon rains have done more harm than good and Balochistan is one of the regions that has been most impacted. Singer-songwriter Hadiqa Kiani’s Vaseela campaign is on a mission to extend as much help as possible to the people devastated by the floods but she needs your help.
On Tuesday, the ‘Boohey Barian’ singer requested her Instagram followers to do their part and contribute. “I request the people of Pakistan to step forward and help our Baloch people who are shelter-less and going through the most painful time of their lives. Together we can face it and help in these catastrophic times,” she captioned a video of her at work.
The Pinjra actor posted an update, thanking a benefactor for the boxes of medical aid they sent. Once again, she turned to the audience and told them every bit of help counts. “It my request to you all, step forward and help the people affected by Balochistan floods. All the details are available on my digital media as to how you can help.”
She shared the list of essential items separately on Vaseela’s Instagram page as well. “Right now we are collecting in Lahore but we will be opening donation drop off locations in Karachi as soon as this week. Please bring supplies if you are able to help,” she wrote.
Parizaad actor Yumna Zaidi and Kiani’s Dobara costar Bilal Abbas Khan re-shared her message on their Instagram stories.
While the full extent of the damage is unknown, the floods have inundated several villages and claimed approximately 225 lives and damaged over 26,000 homes, according to PDMA Balochistan. Along with donating to Vaseela, here are seven other organisations you can send your contributions to and do your part.
