This Views On Tourism article quotes a Sustainable Travel International (STI) aid initiative in Pakistan:
Our partners at GlobalGiving make it easy for travel-related businesses and travelers to help people and places around the world that desperately need it. Right now, for example, you can support on-the-ground relief efforts for the hardest hit victims of the devastating floods that have recently hit Pakistan by making a donation to Comprehensive Disaster Response Services (CDRS).
Monsoons have flooded much of Northern Pakistan displacing thousands of families and leaving masses homeless, but no major relief efforts have yet begun to reach the hardest hit regions. Funds are needed to get supplies and volunteers to where they are most needed. Donations will pay for medicines, vaccinations, emergency equipment, ambulance rental, fuel, food, water and logistics to get these supplies through the difficult terrain into Pakistan’s flood-affected areas.
CDRS has set up a medical clinic close to the hardest hit flood areas. Donations will allow them to purchase and create a supply line from the larger cities to deliver donations of medical supplies, food, water, and medical providers and volunteers.

STI is proud to partner with GlobalGiving to offer travelers and traveler providers the opportunity to support hundreds of critically important projects around the world. To read more about STI’s Travelers Giving Back program please click here.
