Five-year-old Mohira is still afraid to go outside in the mornings and is even too frightened to open the front door. The memory of a terrifying experience has stayed with her until today.
On 13 May 2012, a powerful 5.7 earthquake hit eastern Tajikistan; Mohira’s village was near the epicenter and the most affected. More than 200 homes were destroyed or damaged in the earthquake, leaving more than 2,000 people in need of shelter and immediate support.
