Musharraf donates Rs.10 million to aid Pak flood victims

     Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has donated ten million rupees towards the flood relief efforts in the country. The All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) chief coordinator, Chaudhry Shahbaz Hussain, said that Musharraf announced the donation following the mass devastation caused by the floods, The Daily Times reports. Hussain also accused the federal and provincial governments of having failed to provide enough relief to the affected people, and said that millions of people were still in urgent need of food, shelter and medical supplies. Over 1,600 people have been killed and 15 million affected as raging floodwaters continue to wreak havoc in the country. In addition to causing major human loses, it has destroyed hundreds of thousands of homes, washed away crops and livestock. Relief and rescue work has been hit badly by continuous rains, particularly in the north western region. The United Nations says that Pakistan will need billions of dollars to recover from the deluge, which is being described as the worst in the last 80 years.
