ALERT: Earthquake strikes Pakistan at start of Fall 2019
On Sept. 24, 2019, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake struck Mirpur district in southern Azad Jammu and Kashmir Territory. And days later, severe aftershocks continue to rock the area, making a bad situation even worse. More than 39 people have died, and some 746 injured—however these figures are likely to rise.
As Islamic Relief teams on the ground work diligently to get to survivors, they tell us to anticipate that more and more families will need your urgent aid.
They need your help. Please give what you can so that we can provide emergency aid to our sisters and brothers in their time of need.
We will update this page as we get more information—please stay tuned.
