In October 2005, a devastating earthquake erupted in Pakistan, killing over 80,000 people and impacting over 4 million more people. AIL staff in Pakistan began responding immediately to aid earthquake survivors by gathering blankets, cushions, and clothes in October and a shipment of medicine from Direct Relief International in November. AIL has been able to continue its urgently needed earthquake relief efforts and help thousands of people because of the generous support of Global Giving donors.
After a trip to the Batt Gram region of Pakistan on December 23, 2005, an AIL manager who was a member of the earthquake relief team submitted this report, which describes the devastation she observed, some of her reflections on the impact of this tragedy, and the relief activities of AIL.
Creating Hope International is partnering with the Afghan Institute of Learning to bring relief to victims of the recent earthquake in Pakistan. Staff of the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) in Pakistan is making regular trips from their base office in Peshawar to areas affected by the earthquake. They are delivering blankets, medicine, floor coverings, quilts, pillows, clothes, and other supplies that earthquake survivors urgently need. After a trip to the Balakot region of Pakistan on December 6, 2005, an AIL manager who was a member of the earthquake relief team submitted this report, which describes the devastation she observed, some of her reflections on the impact of this tragedy, and the relief activities of AIL.
