TORONTO: Pak Seniors Forum (PSF) team leaders and supporters are greatly shocked by the massive death and tremendous destruction caused in Philippines by the worst-ever terrible typhoon on November 8, 2013.
In a Press statement, PSF President Syed Muhammad Iqbal and Javed Zaheer, Director Information, said: “The PSF team shares the grief and sorrow of the affected people and their near and dear ones, including in Canada, and sympathize with them. PSF expresses condolence to the bereaved families, offers prayers for the departed souls and appeals to the Canadian Government and people and all communities and countries to extend all possible help.
“The victims include millions of starving children who desperately need help and are struggling for food, water, shelter and medicine. The government is unable to provide support in many areas.
“It is not feared but unfortunately certain that the death toll will climb up even higher when emergency crews will be able to reach parts of Philippines that have been cut off due to heavy floods and landslides.
“The Pakistani community separately and also under the banner of Muslim and other communities are already in action and helping all those helping them. The situation is worsening with the growing risk of fatal diseases.”
