Three earthquakes exceeding 6.0 have devastated the region near the city of Herat in Afghanistan in the last week.
The devastation from these natural disasters has caused over 2,000 casualties. 90% of all deaths were women and children per UNICEF. Our team is on the ground performing assessments and providing immediate emergency relief.
With this level of destruction and insecurity both, short-term, and long-term aid will be needed in the area.
Short term: providing for burials, blankets, food, medicine and shelter are the current goals
Long term: We will work together to rebuild housing, provide business loans and needs to help make devastated families independent once again.
We work together to ensure that people suffering through such extreme challenges know that people around the world care for them and work to offer support that future generations are not diminished by such difficulties.
