SRINAGAR: JKLF chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik Thursday urged non-resident Kashmiris, who are willing to help, to adopt families ruined by last month’s devastating floods.
In a statement, a JKLF spokesman said that Malik while distributing relief and aid to the people of Indranagar, Sonwar, Shivpora and stranded Pandit families at Durganath temple Sonwar, said, “NRKs living in different parts of the world are willing to provide help and assistance to flood devastated people but the need of the hour is to channelize this support. If these NRKs are serious in this matter, let them join hands together, keep their aid and help transparent and adopt devastated families one by one and help these families rebuild their houses and lives.”
Malik said, “For making this job easy, all those organisations and voluntaries who have been working for flood-hit people on ground should prepare a comprehensive list of the affected people and families collectively or assign this job to any one among them and put it on a common website, blog or social media network, so that everyone intending to adopt any family can pick their whereabouts from that website or blog.”
He said, “This way we can keep the whole program of aid and assistance transparent and reach every deserving family and help them rebuild their ruined houses and lives.”
