Tracklist + Liner Notes

  1. Hear Your Call

    Written and composed in support of the 2010 Pakistan flood victims.

    Don’t despair, don’t lose hope
    Hold on to that rope
    Don’t let go, don’t let go
    I hear your call

    Though you feel so cold
    Abandoned and alone
    But don’t let go, don’t let go
    I hear your call

    Give me your hand my brother
    I will not let you go
    Please don’t look back my sister
    I swear I hear you call
    Give me your hand my brother
    I will not let you fall

    Please don’t look back my sister
    Cause I swear I hear your call

    Little boy asks away
    “Where are the streets I used play to?”
    But don’t let go, don’t let go
    I hear your call
    Don’t you know we’re One
    When you hurt I hurt
    Don’t let go, don’t let go
    I hear your call

    URDU
    UMMEDON KO NA TODO
    (Do not lose hope)
    HAATH MERA THAAM LO
    (Hold my hand)
    TANHA NAHI SAMJHO TUM
    (Do not consider yourself alone)
    MERE APNE TUM HO…
    (We are a family)

    Give me your hand my brother
    I will not let you fall

    So don’t look back my sister
    Cause I swear I hear your call

Description

Sami Yusuf releases new song ‘Hear Your Call’ for the Pakistan flood victims and donates all profits to ‘Save The Children’ which is working in the four provinces hit by the disaster.

An estimated 20 million people have been affected by the floods triggered and sustained by torrential monsoon rains in Pakistan. 1600 lives have been lost. The UN estimates some 3.5 million children are at the risk of contracting infections and/or life-threatening diseases diarrhea, malaria and gastroenteritis. The biggest threat however is that in the wake of Cholera epidemic in the displaced population which would threaten the lives of millions. One case of Cholera has been reported in the Swat valley. Clean water and food supplies are critical to the survival of the affected.

Ongoing rains triggering fresh bouts of floods is not only exacerbating the already debilitated situation but serves to hamper the relief efforts. The swelling Indus River threatens to claim more lives and inflict more damage to the region — its people, livelihoods, infrastructure — and, continues to threaten to affect the unaffected regions in the country. This flood and its aftermath has and will continue to slow down the economic wheel of the country which is already dependent on foreign aid.
