A snow blizzard dropped more than 5 feet of snow within a few hours in Murree, Pakistan, trapping families in their vehicles in sub-zero conditions and causing many to freeze to death. Emergency crews have been working around the clock to reach survivors, and those still stuck along the road, but deep snow and abandoned vehicles made the region difficult to navigate quickly.
All donations to this fund will support relief efforts in the snow-covered region of Pakistan. Initially, the fund helps first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, medicine, and shelter. As needs emerge, we will support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations in the impacted area(s).

- Provide food and emergency medical supplies to survivors
- Support temporary relief and emergency supplies for displaced and injured families
- Provide support to front-line workers
