Google to collect donations for flood victims via international appeal

Google has decided to take advantage of the money coming in from all over the world to help flood victims. The biggest search engine on the internet just announced a worldwide campaign to raise money for rainfall areas.

Google has asked its billions of users to each donate $15, $25, or $50 to flood victims. The petition also includes a link to a report by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP). Human Rights Watch goes into more detail about the disaster in Pakistan and asks for help right away.

According to the research, the flood has hit all four provinces of Pakistan, affecting about 15% of the country’s population.

Meanwhile, Human Rights Watch writes:

Flooding shows how urgent it is to do something about climate change. When it comes to the consequences of climate change, Pakistan is among the most at-risk nations. It will see temperatures that are much higher than the average for the world. As well as more and stronger climate disasters.

Austria has also helped Pakistan lately. The disaster relief fund of the foreign ministry has promised €2 million to help people who are traumatized by the recent flooding. Alexander Schal­lenberg, the Foreign Minister of Austria, said that these funds are always to use for the “2022 Pakistan Floods Response Plan (FRP)”. The central government of Pakistan and the United Nations are working together to set up the FRP.

Support for lifesaving measures, emergency agricultural aid, housing, medical first aid, protection for vulnerable population groups, clean water and hygiene, women’s health, and education were all part of the package.

Pakistan has also received aid from China. Monday, the Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Nong Rong gave aid to people in Dera Bugti who used to move because of flooding. Together with Federal Minister for Narcotics Control Shahzain Bugti, he delivered 3,000 bags of aid from the Chinese government.

He said that Pakistan’s help with China’s earthquake in 2008 will not forget.
