Waiting for Funds to Distribute Aid

Thank you for all you have contributed towards AIL’s goal of helping those effected by the intense flooding in Pakistan. While the conditions are still challenging, AIL is seeing positive changes in the lives of those that it works with. 

Once again this fall, there has been devastating flooding in areas of Pakistan. In addition there are still people suffering from the earthquake in 2006, and then the flooding in 2009. While AIL is doing it’s best to aid those affected, there has not been enough funding recently to have an impact. The AIL staff has deemed it best to wait until they have a significant enough amount of funding to be able to pay for supplies for a large number of people as well as the expenses related to transporting the supplies to those in need, rather than attempt to bring a very small amount of aid to those who need it. The AIL staff is looking forward to the day that they are able to once again bring supplies to those who are most in need. 

Don’t forget!  The holidays are a great time to share your passion for AIL and the great work that they do! GlobalGiving offers gift certificates which can be used to donate to AIL’s projects. Also, beginning December 1st, the initial donation made by recurring donors will be matched 100% by GlobalGiving. There is only $25,000 available in matching funds, so help AIL take advantage of this opportunity early!
