The donations to this fund will be distributed amongst projects addressing the devastating 6.4 earthquake that has displaced over 40,000 people and killed more than 300.
A devastating earthquake struck Pakistan's Balochistan province early Wednesday morning. More than 300 people were killed while thousands of homeless survivors continue to be in danger, threatened by animals, cold weather and hunger. Initial estimates suggest around 40,000 people were displaced and 200 villages affected in the earthquake. This Fund will support immediate needs of the survivors and longer-term rebuilding efforts.
The GlobalGiving Relief Fund has been established to support the emergency relief work of organizations in the field. These organizations are currently assessing needs, and will provide updates as soon as available.
Assistance will be provided to thousands of survivors of the earthquake that need immediate assistance with shelter, blankets, drinking water, and communications.
