The presentation given by the charity behind the hospital built in the city of Musaffarabad In north Pakistan in the wake of a devastating earthquake in 2005 should be seen by everybody who donated anything towards the appeal we set up.

Readers of the Telegraph & Argus raised more than £80,000 in the aftermath of the disaster, which directly affected many of those in our community directly through friends and relatives in the affected area.

That money was used by a charity called Midland Doctors towards the construction of a £2.3m hospital, providing free health care for the people in this part of Kashmir.

And yesterday the group hosted a celebration event to thank the people of Bradford for their incredible generosity - and to show just how well that money is being put to good use.

That highlighted the dedication of the group of doctors who run the charity, which has very low administration costs as those doctors give their own time and money to travel, work, teach, support and mentor for this project.

What is clear, though, is that for it to continue growing and succeeding, donations need to keep coming in.

With the earthquakes in Ecuador and Japan a reminder of how cruel and indiscriminate nature can be - and how fortunate we are to live in a country where we do not need to face such disasters - it is worth thinking about how a small donation can help hospitals like this try and reduce the human cost of such catastrophic events.
