Class XI, ENGLISH, "A letter to the editor of a newspaper making an appeal to the readers to help the victims of flood"

The Editor,

The Daily DAWN,


Dear Sir,

The recent floods have rendered thousands of people homeless. They have lost all they had. Most of them had no other source of income except the land they cultivated. They are now lying in camps in a miserable condition. They have no place to go and no means of livelihood.

Through the columns of you esteemed paper, I request the readers to contribute as much as they can towards the Relief Fund started by the Government. We must thank God that we are safe. So we should be helpful to them. If we do not help them in their misery, who would? Every one of us should send at least a day’s income to the Relief Fund. Let them not think for a moment that they are being neglected in their hour of need. They are brethren and let as give the proof of our brotherhood by helping them. It is passing phase and they will look after themselves when rehabilitated.

Thanking you for your cooperation.

Yours truly,

X. Y. Z
