Muslims are doing it for themselves.
Last time there was a tragedy in Pakistan a lot of us gave funds and blankets and clothes etc to help out. When my daughter's mother-in-law (she is from Pakistan) told me that most of the stuff was taken by the gov't to give to the army I was really upset! This time the tragedy is a flood not an earthquake and people are a little slower on the draw but part of that is due to the mistrust we are feeling towards the Pakistani government. In Toronto they've decided to do the work themselves and go there and distribute the goods with no government go-betweens. Read the article here. Does this want to make you give more?
