Devastation in Pakistan. Families need immediate help

Savayra Foundation UK

David Cameron visited a women's education centre in Pakistan - and came away with a gift for fashion-loving wife Samantha.

The Tory leader bought a white top that had been embroidered by students gaining skills at the Savayra Foundation in the village of Chowk Pandori, near Islamabad.

He was also presented with a striking yellow shalwar kameez - similar to pyjamas - to take home for daughter Nancy, four.

"I'll be the best dad in the world," he said proudly.

Mr Cameron chatted with dozens of young women who were learning skills including sewing, beading and embroidery at the centre.

He was accompanied by shadow cohesion minister Baroness Warsi, who set up the project with funding from the UK and helped him pick out Mrs Cameron's gift - known as a Kurta.

Mr Cameron also toured an orphanage in Rawalpindi, on the last leg of a visit that has taken in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

However, the weather put paid to his plans to travel to Pakistan's volatile north-western tribal areas, which few politicians have reached recently due to security concerns.

Helicopters carrying Mr Cameron and his party were forced to turn back when thick mist and rain made flying over mountains too dangerous.
