AMAR reacted immediately to the earthquake in South Asia, looking at the best way to use the expertise gained in 20 months of working in Bam, Iran, after the earthquake there. A self-sufficient team with specific experience of the aftermath of the Bam earthquake, including a doctor, a midwife and a sanitary engineer, was put together. AMAR was invited by the Pakistan Ministry of Health to mobilise the team, working in conjunction with the World Health Organistion.
The team is now working in Muzaffarabad, in the Abbas Medical Institution.
The devastating earthquake which struck South Asia on 8 October killed over 40,000 people, injured over 65,000 and left three million people homeless. With temperatures dropping below freezing, the survivors now face a battle against hypothermia, hunger and disease.
