MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 24 /CSRwire/ - Responding to widespread flood-related displacement and destruction in the region, the General Mills Foundation announced today a contribution of $250,000 to CARE International's Livelihood Rehabilitation efforts in flood-ravaged Pakistan.

General Mills' support of CARE's Livelihood Rehabilitation efforts will help affected individuals and families in Pakistan rebuild and better prepare against future flooding. CARE International will also help farmers rehabilitate crops and protect their farms from further damage.

"The worldwide community is being asked to help. As a global citizen, General Mills wants to do its part," says Ellen Goldberg Luger, executive director of the General Mills Foundation. "We hope General Mills' gift will spur others to support the relief efforts. We are pleased to support CARE's efforts to address the long-term relief needs of individuals and families in Pakistan."

General Mills does not operate in Pakistan, but the contribution by the General Mills Foundation represents continued support and involvement in disaster relief both in Pakistan and around the world.
