Challenge

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.

Solution

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).

How Your Donation Will Be Used

When you donate to GlobalGiving's Pakistan Snow Storm Relief Fund, your donation will be used to:

  • 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
  • Meet other needs that emerge

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
