The floods in Pakistan are a serious crisis and people across the world are taking notice. One such person is American supermodel Bella Hadid, who shared a video clip and asked people to message her with any information about how to help.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Hadid shared a video of young schoolchildren being hurried along in order to save them from floodwater. “Finding real ways to help Pakistan. Message me if you have any information please,” she wrote.
The video featured children crying after witnessing other children being “swept away by the floods”.
In now expired Instagram stories, Bollywood’s Ishaan Khatter and Aly Goni had also shared news of the floods and asked their followers to help.
One of the stars of Netflix’s Never Have I Ever, Poorna Jagannathan, also acknowledged the damage after torrential downpour and widespread flooding in Pakistan. She took to the photo-sharing application and urged her followers to donate to Hands Pakistan, Pakistan Red Crescent Society, Islamic Relief UK and Care Org.
Relief efforts are underway all over Pakistan after abnormal heavy monsoon rains and melting glaciers triggered floods that have submerged a third of the country and killed at least 1,191 people, including 399 children since June 14, the National Disaster Management Authority’s daily update showed.
