EMERGENICES IN PAKISTAN AND AFGHANISTAN

Since 1993, Islamic Relief has been on the front lines of humanitarian aid in Asia and is responding to emergencies in two countries: Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Pakistan

After a 5.9 magnitude earthquake rumbled through the southwestern region of Balochistan in Pakistan on October 7, 2021, Islamic Relief Pakistan immediately began work on the ground to respond to the destruction and devastation in the region.

As we assess damage caused by the earthquake, we are finalizing details on interventions to help even more.

In the meantime, please visit irusa.org/asia/pakistan/ to learn more about what we’re doing to provide emergency aid to survivors.

Afghanistan

In Afghanistan, IRUSA has served for more than 20 years through our regional offices in Kabul, Herat, Bamyan, Nangar-har, and Balkh. Through these offices, we are able to quickly and accurately assess the needs on the ground and provide immediate relief including:

    • Food aid to those suffering from hunger
    • Water storage units and hygiene kits to displaced families
    • Essential non-food items, like cooking pots, utensils, pots, soaps and detergents, solar-powered lamps, towels, and more
    • Family-sized emergency tents and the necessary tools for pitching

Visit irusa.org/afghanistan to learn more about the situation and our intervention as more information becomes available.

In April 2015, the Gorkha earthquake struck Nepal and killed nearly 9,000. In the aftermath, Islamic Relief was on the ground providing thousands of vulnerable survivors with food, shelter, and hygiene kits.

PAKISTAN

Starting with Ramadan and Qurbani food distributions in 1992, programs for those in need across Pakistan have expanded to include development initiatives and vital emergency relief after natural disasters.
