Scenes of roads and fields inundated with rainwater and people’s homes being washed away by floods, forcing them to spend their days and nights out in the open, have not only moved people here in Pakistan but also those living overseas.

And British socialite Jemima Goldsmith, ex-wife of former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, is no exception who has called upon the international community to donate generously for the flood-affected people of Pakistan. 

In a series of tweets, she has uploaded videos of the devastation caused by worst floods in the country’s history, and has appealed to the people for help.   

In one of her tweets, she has named those charity organisations which are helping the flood-affected people in these times of crisis, while in the other she has given the account numbers of the Bank of Punjab (BoP) and Bank of Khyber (BoK) where people could deposit their money.  

In yet another tweet, Jemima has said that close to 2, 000 people have so far died due to floods in the country while over 33 million have been affected, one-third of whom are children.
