Prince Charles in plea for Pakistan flood victims

[ Dawn News ] 9 Dec

Britain’s Prince Charles urged the world not to forget the victims of the Pakistan floods of more than three months ago, saying their suffering was being overlooked. Charles made the statement when he hosted a dinner Thursday night for the Pakistan Recovery Fund (PRF) at the Natural History Museum in London.


The prince said:
“Despite the scale of devastation, the level of suffering and the level of need, the story seems to vanish all too quickly from the headlines as the world’s attention turns to disaster and destruction elsewhere. Yet the suffering in Pakistan goes on.”
The Pakistan Humanitarian Forum, a network of the 41 largest international charities, says more than five million people were affected by the floods.
