M. Ayyub from Good of Mankind-SwitzerlandWrite a message

Until one is committed there is always hesitancy,
the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness,
there is one elementary truth,
the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:
the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help that would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision,
Raising to one’s favor all manner of unforeseen accidents and meetings
And material assistance which no man could have dreamed
Would come his way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. (By Goethe)

Helping Victims of Earthquake in Pakistan 2015 is sign of your boldness and commitment to the noble cause.

I am Engr. Muhammad Ayyub, Secretary of "Good of Mankind-Switzerland" (GMS) purely a non-profit association registered with HRA Bern Switzerland.

GMS do focus on Helping People in Need and Quality Education. Being an Activist based in Bern focusing on Pakistan and other less privileged countries, I have been involved in social work for years now. My profile on social media websites under my name and also the association GMS is accessible.

On Monday 26.10.2015 at 2:09 pm, a powerful earthquake of 7.7 magnitude has struck major cities of Pakistan, leaving at least 360 people dead and injuring over 2,000 people. Also 14,000 houses got completely destroyed. Many areas of Pakistan, in particular Gilgit Baltistan is highly affected. The death toll could climb in coming days because communications are down in much of the remote mountainous region of GB. Aftershocks and epidemics are expected to continue in the affected areas.

Gilgit Baltistan area that is affected the most is Ghizer, Diamer, Ghanche, Skardu, Gilgit itself apart from Hunza, Astore and Kharmang.

This fundraising is for the victims of earthquake that has worse hit these areas and provision of Quality Education in Pakistan. GMS with its project named #EarthquakePakistan2015GilgitBaltistanGMS will be working with renowned organization #BSDI (Baluchistan Sustainable Development Initiative) having worked with UN programmes and other International Organisations for many decades in such disasters. GMS and other local organisations and volunteers Cooperation will give a little relief to the Needy People. This project is a platform for collaboration of organizations as well as individuals with their area of expertise.
Our team is already working there and we plan on moving very quickly on the relief work. It is of utmost importance to provide minimum Shelter to avoid huge Migration in the area before the commencement of severe winters and heavy snowfall. The aspect of "Quality Education" of this association could never be forgotten in any circumstances.
