Afghanistan Earthquake  Relief 

 
Afghanistan earthquake.jpg

On June 22, a powerful earthquake hit the eastern part of Afghanistan and killed at least 1,000 people.  More than 1,500 ppl were also injured.  The earthquake struck about 30 miles from the city of Khost and tremors were felt as far away as Pakistan and India.  Hundreds of houses were destroyed by the magnitude of 6.1 earthquake, which occurred at a depth of 32 miles.
 


 

On July 13, our ground staff from WorldHarvest Pakistan entered Afghanistan and established our base of operation in the small border town of Gayan.  Gayan is one of the districts most affected by the earthquake.  Many houses constructed primarily of wood & mud were destroyed to the ground. Heavy rain and the earthquake contributed to landslides that destroyed almost the entire area. And the current Taliban authorities do not have the capacity to help the locals.

We have so far distributed tents so the local Afghanis in the area can be sheltered, with the aim of helping around two hundred families.  Our immediate need right now is to distribute sleeping essentials such as cots, pillows, and blankets. After that, we will need to provide water & basic food supplies for these families.

 

The people of Afghanistan need your support more than ever.

#STOPHUNGER Campaign

 

The devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world in more severe ways than was expected and as the infection numbers shot to record highs the world economy ground to a near halt. In India, 12.2 million people have lost their jobs due to the lockdown to curb the
coronavirus. Finally on October 11th, the project officially started and each of the 150 families was given 5 sacks complete with soil, manure, seedlings, and training on how to set up and take care of their plants.

Sponsor A Child

Millions of children are forced to leave school early due to poverty. These kids have a conspicuously narrow gateway towards self-empowerment. WorldHarvest recognizes their apparent disadvantage and we aspire to help them break the chains of poverty. When Sponsoring A Child with WorldHarvest,  you are directly breaking the cycle of poverty through the gift of education.
