Pakistani Community in Augusta Joins In For Tsunami Relief

A successful fundraising for tsunami victims was held in Augusta, Georgia, on January 28 at Belair Conference center under the auspicious Indo-American Cultural Association. The mayor Mr. Bob Young and Mr. Ron Cross chairman of Columbia County along with other elected officials attended the event. It was a joint effort by Indo American Cultural Association, Pakistan American Cultural Association, The Hindu Temple of Augusta, Swaminarayan Temple (BAPS), Gurusingh Sabha, and Asian Indian Mission (Indian church). It was a historic event due to the fact not only Pakistani community joined in the effort but made an aggressive fundraising. The local community participated in large numbers. In all about $30,000 were collected. Earlier Hindu Temple itself raised $25,000 and BAPS $10,000.���The contributions from the local community are still being received.
