To provide emergency assistance to victims of the South Asian Earthquake in both India and Pakistan. Emergency food, shelter and medical care will be sent immediately.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Widespread destruction caused by the earthquake has affected at least 5 million people in Pakistan and India, and has claimed over 40,000 lives, a number that is expected to increase as rescue efforts progress. The most urgent needs for survivors in both countries include tents, blankets, warm clothing and water containers. There is also an immediate need for adequate shelter and ready-to-eat food.
How will this project solve this problem?
We will send a generator, tents, blankets and plastic sheets to 500 families in the hardest-hit cities in Pakistan. At the same time we have launched efforts in India: sending 8,000 blankets and 4,000 water containers to survivors.
Potential Long Term Impact
This project will provide emergency relief assistance to survivors of the South Asian Earthquake in both Pakistan and India.
