Challenge

Many Afghans and Pakistanis affected by the earthquake have lost everything. They need immediate shelter, food, clothing and medical care. In the long term they are going to need ongoing assistance to rebuild their lives.

Donations to this project will go towards providing aid to 1,000 of the most vulnerable following this disaster. AIL has a team that has prepared supplies and has identified those it can help. The aid will consist of blankets, one week family food parcels- rice , lentils, oil, sugar, tea, floor coverings and cooking utensils, and a truck and driver for delivery of the supplies to 1,000 people.

Long-Term Impact

The aid provided will help the earthquake victims feed their families, keep warm and dry and give other assistance as needed to help these people make it through this crisis.
