VICTIMS OF AFGHAN EARTHQUAKE
Muslim Aid has allocated £100,000 towards the relief for the victims of the earthquakes that devastated the northern part of Afghanistan on Monday. The earthquake measured 6 on the Richter scale and reduced the town of Nahrin and surrounding villages to rubble. Tanzeem Wasti, Secretary of Muslim Aid, is already in the area to oversee the relief efforts. Working in collaboration with our partner organisation Agency for Rehabilitation and Energy conservation in Afghanistan (AREA), Muslim Aid is sending relief supplies of shelter, food, medicine, blankets and water from Kabul and Mazar-e- Sheriff. The homeless survivors are camping in freezing conditions and many of them are wounded and needing medical attention, which is non-existent in that remote area. The casualty numbers will dramatically increase unless aid reaches the victims soon.
Muslim Aid is an international relief and development charity working to alleviate the suffering among the world's poorest and most needy communities, set up in 1985 by leading British Muslim organisations. It is a registered charity (No. 295224). Telephone number 020 7387 7171 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
