CARE, in cooperation with our partners, continues to work hard in Pakistan & India delivering lifesaving supplies — including winterized tents, plastic sheets, blankets, shawls, metal buckets and other essential supplies — to help earthquake survivors.
Without enough winterized tents to go around, many people in the earthquake-affected region began moving south in search of warmer weather. Those most at risk from the extreme cold are the estimated 1.5 million people who haven’t found shelter — for many of them, the prospects of finding properly winterized shelter are running out.
In addition to simply delivering tents, we're coming up with innovative housing solutions that provide shelter from the elements and are much safer if another earthquake or aftershock strikes.
In India, CARE and our partners have delivered: 22,000 blankets 7,500 water storage tanks 2,000 feminine hygiene kits 15,000 woolen jackets 7,500 waterproof tents 10,000 floor mats 15,000 kangri (traditional heaters)
In Pakistan, CARE has been busy delivering emergency supplies, including: 4,500 tents 8,000 blankets 4,000 plastic mats and sheets 14,600 shawls 8,500 water bottles 6,500 hygiene kits 75,000 water purification kits
