The disaster of 8th October was a dilemma, which resulted in unprecedented loss of men and material. The scale of this catastrophe was stunning. This was clearly the worst natural disaster in Pakistan’s history. The impact was totally devastating, a generation has been lost, livestock killed, livelihood destroyed and survivors are facing unbearable human sufferings. Children have orphaned, the women have been rendered destitute and thousand of people have been disabled and are suffering from psychological trauma.
The Government, the people of Pakistan, International Community and Civil Society groups all galvanized, jelled into one and reached out to affected areas for help. The response was over whelming and heart warming. These concerted efforts of National cohesion will remain indelibly etched in our minds.
Sheltar committed for the welfare and wellbeing of masses of Pakistan, rose to the occasion once again. The team of Sheltar stepped forward, reached out to the affected areas and conducted relief/ rescue work. Sheltar implemented a plan for prompt and effective measures for earthquake affectees.
Sheltar stood by with the Government at this critical juncture and rendered a huge helping hand in line with the policies set forth.
