More than 33 million people are affected by catastrophic floods in Pakistan. People have lost their homes and are exposed to waterborne diseases and countless other health and safety risks. To serve the humanity, actor Hira Mani and her husband Mani are winning hearts with their extra ordinary efforts to raise funds in collaboration with the Indus Hospital.
In August the duo kick started the campaign and gave a shoutout for the USA fundraiser 2022
The 21 City Journey
Hira and Mani have collected funds from Detroit, San Antonio, Minneapolis, Atlanta, St.Louis, North Carolina, Austin and Chicago. Now they will be heading to Dallas on Saturday and Columbus on Sunday. After that they will be heading to New Jersey, Santa Calrita, Portland, Tampa, Orlando and Boston as their last stop.
$2 Million Collected From 8 Cities of USA
Mani, who is still in the US for the fundraiser exclusively spoke to Fashion Times Magazine, and said, “We are the brand ambassadors associated with The Indus Hospital. This was the first time when I and Hira are working together for a cause. So far, we have visited 8 cities and the response by the overseas Pakistanis has been overwhelming.”
He further added, “Indus Hospital is Pakistan’s biggest charity hospital. They are helping the flood victims through Mobile Medical Buses that comprise of family medicine clinics with consultant doctors, laboratory testing, and a pharmacy. Daily, they are treating more than three hundred flood victims all across Pakistan.”
Actor Nadia Afghan took to social media to laud the efforts of the two. The Kala Doriya star wrote that instead of making fun of her mistakes, people should spread the positives too. Not many are aware of the fact that Hira is a very simple and nice human being. “This was not an easy task but you did it,” Afghan said, with a prayer for her.
The Government Appeal
Earlier, the government appealed to the nation for generous donations saying it lacked the resources to deal with such a big disaster. “Let’s turn this calamity into an opportunity,” Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal, who also heads National Flood Response Coordination Center (NFRCC), said at a press conference.
