OCTOBER 8 was a day of incredible disaster and yet it seemed as if it was a wake-up call for slumbering Pakistanis. Television was constantly beaming scenes of destruction and death. Suddenly everyone wanted somehow to make a difference, and so began the donations of tents, blankets, warm clothing, food rations, etc.
Just some quick facts in comparison:
