Sending aid from Germany through PIA

In Germany, PIA is not dealing with individual donors. Instead donors are redirected to organizations in Frankfurt who are coordinating this effort in collaboration with PIA. Please drop warm stuff like tents, blankets, sleeping bags, jackets, pullovers and medicine at them. They are only accepting new stuff. Only tents can be second-hand, but in good condition. Please pack the goods in big cartons or fasten them together in big lots with ropes and put labels on them listing the items included.

If you have a lot of stuff, you can contact Pak consulate directly to get a NOC and then deliver it to PIA cargo at Frankfurt airport. Phone no of consulate is +4969421012. NOC can be obtained via fax at: +4969421017.

An organization "Humanity Trust" is sending tents etc to Pakistan via PIA and intends to send the remaining stuff through other transport services. They have collection points in all major cities. Contact Zubair Khalil Khan at 069-50688663 or 069-95095787 to find out a location near you.
