GSBN:An inquiry about Pakistan...

Dear friends,

Below is a message from someone at the Dosti Foundation working in
earthquake relief in Pakistan. I have suggested he contact Bruce King,
Jeff Ruppert, David Mar and Kelly Lerner for possible help and guidance
but also think that there may be people in this group who may be able to
be of assistance and so I am posting his message here.

Please respond directly with him, Greg Zaller at gregzaller@...

Thanks and best regards,

David Eisenberg
