Volunteers Needed for Ikonami Relief Convoys in Pakistan

Ikonami, is arranging a convoy with blankets, clothing, food and medicines to assist those affected by the eathquake in Pakistan . Ikonami's convoy will be dispatched to Gharee Habib Ullah, north of Islamabad. This is one of the places still accessible and a staging ground for search and rescue work further north. If you or your friends are in Pakistan at the moment and would like to join the convoy as a volunteer please contact the Ikonami's office in Pakistan: Waris Kamal's number is 0092-51-287-1927.

All support is valuable since Saturday morning unfolded with the worst disaster Pakistan has ever experienced. The earthquake that hit the northern part of Pakistan was 7.6 in its magnitude. As the event unfolded aid workers attached to Ikonami found out that there were cities and villages that were completely wiped out and more than 48 hours into the disaster there has been no help that has reached these areas, as the roads have been blocked by land slides. More information regarding the volunteer coordination for relief convoys can be obtained from IKonami's office in the UK - Tel: 0207 016 9770 | Fax: 0207 016 9110

Hi...I am a student of first yr BDS in Karachi. I would definitely like to join this convoy. I would like to know if there is any age restriction or not. Also how many people do you really need?
