Malaysia donates RM3m to flood-hit Pakistan

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia yesterday gave a US$1 million (RM3.2 million) donation to Pakistan to help the country handle its worst floods in 80 years which have killed 1,600 people and displaced more than 15 million.
Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Datuk Richard Riot Jaem handed over a cheque for the amount to Charge d'Affaires Ad Interim of the Pakistan High Commission in Kuala Lumpur, Dr Imtiaz A. Kazi, at Wisma Putra here.

Riot said Malaysia was concerned about the plight of the people of Pakistan who were facing the most devastating floods in the country's history.

He also said the ministry had launched a disaster fund to enable Malaysians to donate to the victims in Pakistan. 
Donations could be channelled to the fund through cheques in the name of "Tabung Bencana Kementerian Luar Negeri", he said.

"I hereby appeal to members of the public, corporate figures, corporations and individuals to come forward to assist our brothers and sisters in Pakistan." -- Bernama
