On 24th September, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake struck East Pakistan killing at least 40 people and injuring over 700. Roads were torn apart and almost 6,000 houses were damaged. The earthquake was so powerful that tremors were felt in Lahore, Peshawar and Islamabad, and as far away as New Delhi. The worst-affected area was Mirpur in Pakistan-administered Kashmir. Mirpur city is just a few kilometres from the epicentre (Jhelum), and its hospitals have been inundated with victims

Our teams on the ground responded swiftly distributing immediate relief including medical aid, cooked meals, clothes and tents. Now , our teams aim to provide family food parcels and mid-term shelters for the hundreds of families whose homes have been destroyed. Winter is coming next month and temperatures are set to fall below freezing leaving families at risk of being exposed to the elements without adequate shelter. Act now to provide vital relief.
