Senior politician and former senator, Nawabzada Mir Lashkari Raisani on Thursday said that thousands of people were in desperate need of support in Balochistan. “The philanthropists should come forward and support the flood-affected people”, Mr. Raisani said.

The Balochistan Peace Forum launched relief activities in flood-affected areas of the province to support the affected people. “People are deprived of a one-time meal and we should join hands to support them”, Lashkari Raisani said.

Flash floods unleashed by heavy rainfall played havoc across Balochistan. Almost 80 percent area of the province, which covers half of the country in terms of the area has been hit hard by floods and torrential rains.

The Balochistan Peace Forum distributed relief goods among the affected people in Nawan Killi, Hana Urak, Killi Nasaran and other parts of the province. “We standby our people in this hour of trial”, Haji Lashkari said.
