The Progressive Workers Federation (PWF) and Trade Union Rights Campaign Pakistan (TURCP) urge all our brothers, sisters and comrades in the international trade union movement to show their solidarity and support for the people affected by the devastating flood in our country, especially trade union members, workers and peasants.

We urgently need resources to provide relief to our affected brothers and sisters. Amongst the millions hit by the flooding more than 200 members of the TURCP (Trade Union Rights Campaign - Pakistan) and Progressive Workers Federation and their families have been affected.

Their houses, crops and everything else have been wiped out. They need food, clean drinking water, medicines, tents and other daily utilities.

We are trying to provide whatever is possible for us to provide to these families. But we urgently need your help, solidarity and support for these people. We request that all trade unions, union branches and workers and members of the trade unions support our campaign.

Every penny you donate will be accounted for and reach the affected people. Signed:
