Dear Kent and Montie,
On behalf of the Hashoo Foundation USA and the Alliance of Pakistan Floods Relief Efforts, kindly receive my most sincere appreciation for your donation of 1,500 buckets to provide humanitarian aid to the people of Sinhd affected by the 2011 floods which destroyed the livelihood of millions of people in Pakistan.
The Alliance of Pakistan Floods Relief Efforts mobilized the Houston giving community and local businesses who generously joined our efforts by donating the necessary nutritious dry foods, medicines and hygiene items to fill the AICB buckets, while other organizations donated blankets, head cups and slippers.
The preparation and farewell ceremony of the 40-feet container loaded with humanitarian aid was hosted by the Alliance of Pakistan Floods Relief Efforts at the Pakistan Association of Greater Houston (PAGH). The ceremony was attended by the Honorable Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, Honorable Congressman Al Green, Honorable Consul General of Pakistan Honorable Aqil Nadeem, Honorable Consul General of Turkey Jemalettin Aydin, City of Houston Representative Honorable City Councilman Al Haoung, members of the media, sponsors and community volunteers.
The container carrying 1,200 buckets, thousands of banquets, head cups and slippers, departed from the Port of Houston to the Port of Karachi on December 6, 2011, and it is expected to reach the people of Sinhd before the end of January 2012.
Thank for allocating 300 of the buckets to Bangladesh. Our partner Helping Hands USA, committed to transport and distribute the buckets filled with blankets and clothes.
Thank you again, for improving people's lives and making the world a better place.Sincerely,
Cristal Montañéz Baylor
