Collaboration req. from Pakistan

Please could the following call for collaboration be placed on the bulletin board.
I have had a request for assistance in finding possible collaborators to help two medical geneticists in Pakistan. They have identified several families with the following disorders:
1) Dwarfism with multiple bone abnormalities (autosomal dominant) 2) Multiple exocytosis (autosomal recessive) two families 3) Mental retardation (X linked). More than 50 members affected and living in one village. 4) A new type of anodantia (autosomal recessive) 5) Nail abnormalities 6) Alopecia (autosomal recessive)
There are more than 15 affecteds in each family.
