Fund raising Pakistan


Dear Colleagues,

Following the monsoon rains that have caused devastating flooding in Pakistan, taken the lives of more than 1500 people, displaced 20 million and destroyed hundreds of thousands of homes, CERN Management and the Staff Association are organizing a collection to help the victims of what UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, has described as a disaster worse than any he has witnessed before.

The money collected will be transferred equally to Caritas ( and to the Swiss Labour Assistance ( guaranteeing proper use of the funds.
From today you can pay your donations into a special UBS account, marking “Pakistan flooding” as the reason for payment.

IBAN:    CH85 0027 9279 HU10 6832 1
Account number: 279-HU106832.1
Account Holder: Association du personnel CERN, 1211 GENEVA 23

Mr Ban went on to say that he had witnessed “so many people, in so many places, in so much need,” and that “the flood waves must be matched with waves of global support.” We are counting on the generosity of the CERN community to add to those waves of support by giving generously to this appeal for aid for the Pakistani people at this very difficult time.

Thank you on their behalf.
