The current confirmed death toll is over 300 and thousands of people have been injured. Thousands of homes have been completely destroyed leaving at least 15,000 people homeless and on the streets in extremely harsh cold weather.
Rescue and aid efforts have been slow in reaching the thousands of people affected by the earthquake. The primary requirement is of food and shelter from the intense cold weather for the survivors, burial of the dead, medicines and supplies as well as doctors and volunteers.
The 2005 earthquake saw the nation united as one, in helping the victims of the disaster with their generous assistance. A similar effort is needed on an urgent basis at all levels.
We have a team on the ground in the affected areas, working round the clock providing food, shelter, and mobile hospitals to the victims of this tragedy and we would greatly appreciate your assistance.
You can help!
If you are a doctor who can travel on short notice, or if you wish to help as a volunteer or with supplies/medicines/tents and other basic necessities, or even monetarily, please call +92 321 8950589 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on our operation and how you can help.
Please pass this message on. May Allah protect our brothers and sisters, grant them ‘sabr’ at this difficult time, and accept our honest gesture. Aameen.
