Sharing is Caring

Earthquake Children Appeal

Pakistan suffered heavy losses when the earthquake struck South-East Asia on 9 October 2005. Over 80,000 people were killed . Homes, schools, medical centres and mosques damaged or destroyed . Over 2 million people were left homeless and many more injured including children who make up half the population of the affected areas many of them in inaccessible mountain villages. They now face a bitterly cold winter and it has been a race against time to get supplies to them before the heavy snow arrives.

We asked our children to make a donation, no matter how small, to the children of the affected area, who are particularly vulnerable and in desperate need of support and medical treatment.

The collected amounts were donated to UNICEF who lead the international response in the areas of child protection, immunization and medical care, provision of water and sanitation, education and communication.
