Pellet victims appeal public for financial help

“Our organization is not a funded organization. We depend on the support of common people. Over 1200 pellet victims are in our group, who come from poor families and couldn’t afford medicines and other treatment charges,” said Mohammad Ashraf, 28 year old pellet victim of the group.

With Eid-ul-Fitr round the corner the pellet victims on Wednesday made an impassionate appeal to the masses to help them financially.  

The pellet victims under Pellet Victim Welfare Trust (PVWT) said that they have been economically drained due to high cost of treatment, as most of them belong to economically weaker sections of the society.

“Our organization is not a funded organization. We depend on the support of common people. Over 1200 pellet victims are in our group, who come from poor families and couldn’t afford medicines and other treatment charges,” said Mohammad Ashraf, 28 year old pellet victim of the group.

Ashraf said there are some pellet victims who want to commit suicide now, since they are finding it hard to survive.

He said people must come forward for their help and there cannot be a better occasion other than Eid for this humanitarian gesture.
