Relief & Rehabilitation

Earthquake 2005

On October 8, 2005 earthquake struck the Kashmir & caused widespread destruction in Azad Jummu and Kashmir (AJK), almost 75.000 people were killed and 4 million people were made homeless. The major affected areas were North of AJK. The earth quake destruction made people’s life terrible. They lost their houses, their businesses, livelihood & agriculture.

KIIR appealed to the whole world, diplomatic community & aid agencies for rescue, relief & rehabilitation. In response, European countries and international organizations provided teams to the rescue & relief efforts in Azad Jummu and Kashmir (AJK). On request of KIIR, the ambassadors from EU, Poland & Czech Republic visited Bagh and facilitated patients and disabled women in different hospitals. With the efforts of our organization & help of numerous relief teams people switched from the “relief phase” to a “recovery phase” within six months.

Under this platform, we already worked during the rehabilitation process. We got tremendous response and our teams did a fabulous job. We provided them tents & made shelter homes of CGI sheets for earthquake victims.
