The following is an extract from an email received July 31, 2015 from Catholic Charity Caritas Pakistan Islamabad-Rawalpindi:

Dear Mr. Patrick J. Phelan,
“Around 3000 Christian and Muslim families have been badly affected due to flash floods in Peshawar. The level was so intense that at some points water rose as high as 6 feet and destroyed all the belongings of the people. Caritas Pindi, as per its mandate, is planning to provide immediate relief, to these poor families. We understand the limitation of SPICMA for regular and large funding but at the same moment we cherish our long standing partnership in responding to the emergencies, as nothing is small in emergencies.
“Best regards, – Caritas Pakistan Islamabad-Rawalpindi.

We have sent immediately £14,500
