Edhi Foundation, Islamic Relief, and Human Development Fund are organizations that have in the past effectively worked on providing direct aid to the affected. Another suggestion some imams have also given is, in lieu of hosting an iftaar for your friends and family this year, take the money you would have spent and send it to the flood victims. **Ash also pointed out that you can text to certain organizations who will in turn provide $5-10 towards flood victims for each text, a link of these organizations is here. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, donations to these victims are staggeringly less than any other disaster in recent history. I'd like to hope prejudice is not the reason but it makes it even more important for those of us who care, to give and do what we can.
The United Nation’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) stated that the flood disaster had eclipsed the scale of the devastating 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan and the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti combined. About 14 million people have now been affected by the flooding, and about 1,600 people killed. Both figures are expected to rise in the coming days. Pakistan's federal flood commission estimated that 300,000 homes have been destroyed or seriously damaged so far and 2.6m acres (105,000 sq km) of croplands submerged. Six million [of the 14 million affected] are children and 3 million women of child-bearing age. This is a higher figure than in the 2005 south Asia tsunami," the UN's humanitarian affairs co-ordination office said. [source: HDF]
