Caritas is mobilizing to provide emergency assistance and relief to the thousands of people in the Ziarat district of Baluchistan, near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border who have been devastated by a 6.4 magnitude earthquake.

The tremor which struck in the early hours of Wednesday morning has killed up to 170 people, triggered landslides, injured hundreds, displaced thousands and has destroyed houses and government buildings.
