Medical Care and Provisions to Earthquake Victims



The project is designed to meet the critical needs of victims of the South Asian earthquake. The project provides an immediate response to urgent medical needs and basic provisions to victims.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The first need in earthquake assistance is medical care and medicines for the injured because all government hospitals in the area have been destroyed. Teams of independent doctors from other parts of the country, along with army medical staff, are providing some basic access. However, a recently created army medical camp in Muzaffarabad seems to have no bandages, gauze or painkillers. There is also a need for basic provisions, including food, water and tents.

How will this project solve this problem?

Provide needed medical supplies and basic provisions to victims of the South Asian earthquake. Medical care workers need surgical supplies, bandages, antibiotics and painkillers, while victims need blankets, tents, food and water.

Potential Long Term Impact

Providing immediate medical support and supplies as well as basic provisions to victims of the South Asian earthquake.
