Pakistan is in big trouble - Please help

The devastation caused by the flooding in Pakistan is bad enough but for some reason the usual international outpouring of aid has not been forthcoming, and the government of Pakistan is not up to  the task. 


The UN says 20 million are now homeless, so food and water for those people is going to be a problem. Here is a late New York Times story:

And from The Guardian:

Further below I listed some ways to donate money, and here is a link to aid efforts organized by the labor unions of Pakistan.
