A Lubbock doctor will head up medical relief efforts in Pakistan.

A massive earthquake hit the country Saturday, killing 25,000 people. The Lubbock Islamic community is asking for your help.

"We're trying to mobilize our resources from West Texas, so the West Texans, really kind people can be part of this great tragedy that is happening on the other side of the world," said Dr. Saeed Ahktar, M.D., with the Association of Pakistani Physicians.

Dr. Ahktar will lead a team of doctors in Pakistan as they help those in the areas most affected by the earthquake. Right now, the group needs money to buy medicine, food, blankets and other supplies. You can donate online, ( click here) for more information.
