Peace Winds Japan (PWJ) dispatched its relief staff to Northern Pakistan immediately after a massive earthquake hit the region on October 8th 2005. During its initial stage, PWJ staff members distributed emergency relief supplies to help internally displaced persons survive the winter, in the outskirts of Balakot (a remote province in northwestern Pakistan). As the early phase of emergency relief approached to its end in December, PWJ joined with other NGOs in Japan Platform (JPF) to set-up and operate a camp for the earthquake victims in a suburb of Muzaffarabad, Azad Kashimir Province.
Peace Winds Japan (PWJ)'s emergency relief team in Pakistan started distribution of emergency relief items to survivors in the Northwestern remote region of Balkot on October 15. As of October 20, the emergency team has provided 450 tents and 500 sets of kitchen items including dishes, cups, spoons and forks to victims in the area. At that time, it appeared that few aid agencies had been able to start full-scale distribution of emergency supplies to this area.
