Asian earthquake emergency response

The earthquake that hit parts of Pakistan, India and Afghanistan on the morning of Saturday 8 October 2005, 100 kilometres (62 miles) northeast of Islamabad, caused massive devastation, razing entire villages and towns to the ground.

We are working with our partner, the global alliance ACT International, to ensure that aid is delivered to those in need. ACT members are responding in Pakistan to assist families in North West Frontier Province and Azad Kashmir.

Emergency food packages (including wheat flour, rice, pulses and cooking oil) and shelter kits are being distributed and medical camps have been set up in affected areas.ACT members are working closely with international and local organisations and authorities to organise relief efforts which will address immediate needs, and determine what longer-term response may be needed.
