Project provides housing and support to families in Pakistan who have been affected by the South Asian earthquake.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The devastating earthquake that hit South Asia has left millions of people homeless and displaced. There is an urgent need for some form of shelter for these families before winter temperatures set in. The trauma faced by the earthquake victims is so acute that they are refusing to seek shelter in any of the remaining buildings in the area and prefer to stay out in the open or to huddle in tents.
How will this project solve this problem?
We are raising funds for the rehabilitation of the earthquake victims and, in particular, to help more than 200 families begin their lives anew. We will provide shelter and support to these families as they begin to rebuild their lives.
Potential Long Term Impact
To provide medium- to short-term help for 200 families who have been affected by the South Asian earthquake by supplying them with needed shelter and support.
