Challenge

So far, one week after the earthquake, casualties are reported between 2400 and 11000. Most homes are destroyed. The earthquake happened around 5 AM when most families were asleep. If there are any survivors, they have nothing left.

The aim of this project is to deliver immediate assistance to the people who have been affected by the disaster. The project will provide the survivors with emergency needs such as food, water, shelter, clothing and medical care.

Long-Term Impact

Our aim is to provide support and assistance to the people who have been affected by the calamity and help them recover from the trauma and rebuild their lives. We believe that this project will have a positive impact on the well-being and resilience of the survivors and enable them to overcome the challenges they face in the aftermath of the disaster.
