Sami Yusuf records single for victims of Pakistan floods

Posted on September 2nd, 2010

Singer songwriter Sami Yusuf has recorded a single in aid of Save the Children’s campaign to support flood victims in Pakistan.

Hear Your Call can be downloaded now from iTunes, or directly from the Sami Yusuf website. All profits from the sales will go towards Save the Children’s work in Pakistan. Members of the public can also donate directly at Save The Children.

Yusuf, who has sold more than 7m albums over his career, urges his fans to pay attention to the plight of people in Pakistan.

“This is an enormous disaster and I personally feel we all, as fellow humans, have a responsibility to help the victims in any way we can,” he explains. “The floods have completely changed many people’s lives and through our actions, we can offer hope. In such times we have to align ourselves with the right organisations to reach out to the affected areas as effectively and urgently as possible.”

Save the Children is working in all four provinces of Pakistan that have been severely hit by the floods, helping children and their families.

Save the Children senior emergencies advisor Matt Wingate says, “The consequences of these floods for children is unimaginable. Many children have seen their houses, possessions and loved ones simply swept away. We are enormously grateful to Sami for his generous help – but also that he is urging others to donate to this important cause.”
