Appeals for donation
Prior to this, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa requested well-off citizens to aid the victims financially or through other means.
The army chief explained that the country has also asked for help from friendly countries, and is hoping for cooperation. Relief and rescue operations are complete, and it is now a matter of rehabilitation. This could take years and is only possible with the help of the entire nation.
