SAY Pakistan and the eyebrows raise. Match fixing. Corruption. Taliban. Extremism. US interference. The list is a long one.
But this week I go there to cover a humanitarian mission – the giving of aid to the 20 million people along the Indus River lowlands who’ve been rendered homeless by the worst floods in living memory. These are the poorest of the poor in a country of about 60 million. And as I write, the waters still continue to come, a month after the unusually heavy monsoon rains and the early melting of the snow and glaciers in the Hindu Kush mountains.
I will be accompanying the Al Imdaad Foundation – and if technology is able, God-willing – hope to file daily reports on Drivetime after 4 pm.
Keep us in your prayers.
