by Sangtani Women Rural Development Organization (SWRDO)


Following the magnitude 7.5 earthquake that struck KPK Province, Pakistan on 26 October, currently there are 231 people reported killed in Pakistan with 185 of those fatalities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP). In addition, 1,656 are injured with 1,456 of those injuries in KP. By virtue of having most extensive experience of emergency response, SWRDO has planned a project "Support to Earth quick affected families of Pakistan" through the provision of Tent Shelter and winterization kits

SWRDO mobilized its need assessment team in order to identify and prioritize needs of the worst affected families for a possible emergency response. It was carried out on 27 October 2015. It was observed that Tent Shelter and winterization kit is the basic and priority need of most of the Earth quick affected families especially old age persons, children, women and infants. The extremely vulnerable Earth quick affected families have no means for ensuring their protection from the winter season


Project will directly benefit most vulnerable families affected by the Earth quick 2015. These would include families headed by vulnerable groups such as children, females, elderly males and females at risk of protection, disable persons or those with prolonged ailment, poor families with large number of dependent children particularly girls, food insecure and poor families with pregnant or lactating women and social excluded families.SWRDO will not target those families who's received assistant
