Hi Everyone,

My girlfriend has been trying to find her mom, and when I told her about the couchsurfing community she asked me to reach out to you. I'm hoping you native residents of Karachi can help me with something that is quite urgent. My girlfriend's mom who is originally from Karachi left her family home in London and flew to Karachi to stay with relatives last September. After an argument with them she left their home claiming she would find a hotel and no one has heard from her for the last 3 months. She suffers from an extreme case of schizophrenia and does not have her medication with her. Her relatives are not willing to help look for her mother and there is very little the authorities in England or Pakistan can do.

She has run away in the past and stayed in hotels in London so we hope she is doing the same thing in Karachi. My girlfriend has tried to contact budget hotels/hostels in Karachi but a lot of the numbers listed online are incorrect/old and we are sure many places are not registered on the internet.
Can anyone offer some names and (working) phone numbers of budget hotels/hostels in Karachi so she can contact the places and ask to speak to her mother? Are there other places a single woman can stay for free or little money? Her mother may have tried to work as a volunteer in order to have free board somewhere.

Flying to Karachi is expensive and if she finds her mother she probably will not want to return. She just wants to know she is safe and needs the help of people who live there and know the area well. Any help you additional resources you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
