U.S. Muslims Give Pakistan Flood Donation to Christian Agency

Sometimes tragedies bring us together.  Check out this article from the Christian Post:

“A U.S. Muslim group decided to help Pakistani flood victims through a Christian humanitarian aid agency, the latter group reported Tuesday.

The Muslim Community of North East Tennessee (MCNET) donated the $11,000 it raised to help the families in the hard-hit town of Shabarra in Khyber-Pakhtoonkhwa Province (formerly known as the Northwest Frontier) to World Vision.

MCNET’s organizers, who are Pakistani Americans, praised the Christian aid agency for distributing relief supplies bought using the donation in a ‘very organized and dignified way.’ The group said it wants to raise more money and support more families in Shabarra, which has not received any aid other than from WV.

‘The fact that Pakistanis are helping Pakistanis is highly commendable,’ remarked Shaharyar Khan Bangash, who manages World Vision’s programs in Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa Province. ‘These donations from the Pakistani community through World Vision are an endorsement of the trust the Pakistani community has in our work.’”
