Dear Colleagues,

A powerful earthquake of magnitude of 7.7 struck north-eastern Afghanistan on the morning of 26 October 2015. The majority of reported deaths and damage occurred in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province, the epicentre of the quake being only 67 km from Chitral City. The remoteness of the most affected areas – lying within the Hindu Kush mountain range- in addition to landslides and winter weather have been thwarting attempts to access and assess the scale of need.

ACT member Church World Service says Pakistan’s catastrophes are not being addressed and funded in relation to the severity of the calamity.

This time of the year is particularly hard on the displaced population as they currently survive on minimal resources and the summer’s scorching heat is merciless to their hopeless cries.
