What is Cardano for Pakistan? Who creates the art?
Zuschan: Cardano for Pakistan is a entirely voluntary charity fundraiser that affects a number of different creators from the Cardano NFT space, too Support the more than 33 million victims of the devastating floods in Pakistan.
There was minimal media coverage or attention on that frontbut 1/3 of the nation is submerged under water, and Deaths happen every day. Basically everyone involved with Cardano for Pakistan is working on it support and help those affected.
There are multiple artists on board including but not limited to v (ADA NinjaZ), flavio (Universe 25), happier (lucky planet), Mac CC (Cardano Casino, Project 2090, Boss Dao) time (cyberbots) Henry TG, bung king, pink queen, Victor Warr, Joseph Miranda, SYIOK, movement, Kimosabe art, oil (SpaceBudz), ADA ARMY, cosmos (pendulum) Sampo, ExeDeb (Curse NFT) and more.

We are going to Donate any funds to Savepakistan.cryptoan initiative led by Tayaba Organization in Pakistan functioning as one crypto aggregatorand has hundreds of different organizations that they are in touch with on the ground in Pakistan.
You are able make sure the money is being used properly and delivered directly to the people who need it most.
How is the situation in Pakistan? What are people going through and what can be done to help them?
Maximum: Currently is Pakistan paying an enormous price for our global climate change. The flood caused a potential economic loss of $30 billionapart from the economic losses Pakistan has to recover from, we see Over 6.4 million people are left behind and lack adequate access to basic needs such as shelter, food, water, medical assistance, etc.
Even when the flooding subsides, it may take years for Pakistan to fully recover from this disaster. We hope that beyond just donating, people will understand that global warming is affecting people. It’s not about who is causing or responsible for climate change, it’s about accepting that we are part of a generation that must do whatever it takes to fight climate change. Small changes often have the biggest impact.
Statistics on the damage caused by the floods in Pakistan
What are the benefits of blockchain technology and NFTs when giving? What is the process and how can donors be sure that their money will reach the desired destination?
Maximum: Personally, I think that’s really not an advantage from a technical point of view, but rather from a technical point of view Perspective of a strong community! The crypto space as a whole is a tight-knit group of people all in the same boat who want a brighter financial future for the next generation. Especially At Cardano, people stick together and support each other to achieve this goal.
Thanks to this mindset, projects like Cardano for Pakistan, can bring everyone together and work towards helping, regardless of the technology and blockchain you support.
However, This technology allows us to offer donors complete transparency into how funds are being moved, transferred and potentially allocated.
That’s the power Crypto has, and that’s why initiatives like ours can’t do with basically any complex infrastructure set up such a project and be held fully accountable by the community.
I wish you good luck! Any closing remarks? Where can people learn more and donate?
Maximum: As simple as it may sound, a “THANKS” to everyone who interacted with Cardano For Pakistan in any shape or form. Every donation helpsand even by simply Share the cause, you are part of the solution! <3
