The October 8 earthquake killed at least 70,000 people. Millions of Pakistanis and Indians have been left homeless by the immense quake that rocked their countries and destroyed entire villages. Thousands of children were among the casualties, trapped under debris when their schools collapsed. 50% of the homes in the area are said to have been destroyed.
Contributions to the Earthquake Fund will be allocated to projects being implemented by GlobalGiving partners that are closest to reaching their funding goals. Donors can support long term recovery without having to pick a specific project.
The U.N. estimates that the population affected by the quake could exceed 4 million; recovery will take years. The Fund will help in rebuilding infrastructure, economic regeneration, and vocational training aimed at providing work and income.
