Immediately following the 7.5-magnitude earthquake that hit Afghanistan last week and affected Pakistan and India, Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) was the first humanitarian organization to respond.
Within one hour of the disaster, the Disaster Management Information Center (DMIC) was convened to monitor the situation. QRCS allocated $375,000 from its Emergency Response Fund to launch an urgent intervention there.
