In July, monsoon rains flooded portions of Pakistan, and according to estimates from the United Nations, more than 2,000 people have died, and more than 21 million people have been injured or are homeless.

Batool Kazim, M.D., a psychiatrist originally from Pakistan, told Psychiatric News that she has been working with the Pakistan Flood Relief Group to raise awareness of the need to aid flood victims. The relief group has a Web site with information about the damage and the need for clothing, food, and financial resources in Pakistan. Visitors to the site, <www.pakflood.org>, are also welcome to donate money that will go to flood victims.

"The magnitude of the disaster is still unfolding and is unimaginable," Kazim said.

She is also involved with the Pakistan Association of Greater Boston and the Association of Pakistani Physicians of New England, through which physicians have been volunteering their time in Pakistan coordinating relief efforts and treating victims of the flood.

The Web site of the Pakistan Association of Greater Boston is <www.pagb.org>; the Web site for the Association of Pakistani Physicians of New England is <www.appne.net>.blacksquare
