Pakistan floods: how Australians can help

Today ABC radio is conducting an appeal for relief of the Pakistan floods devastation. The lead agency/beneficiary is UNICEF but the ABC website has links to several other charities.

Speaking of the ABC, Sally Sara and her support team have been doing an excellent job bringing the magnitude of the disaster to Australian viewers. In doing so they have justified the ABC's extensive network of foreign correspondents.

Despite some concerns about threats to western aid agencies from the Taliban Sally has reported that relief work will continue . Other Australians with links to or experience of Pakistan, for example Ian Chappell, have also lent their support.

As do I, though I've never been to Pakistan..
