DISASTER

A 5.8 magnitude earthquake hits Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

IMPACT

Dozens are killed and hundreds injured as the earthquake damages homes and roads.

RESPONSE

As flooding worsens in Niger, overwhelming entire villages and ruining precious food reserves, we provide 400 families with a month’s worth of food as well as soap, mosquito nets and sleeping mats. Those with especially fragile homes receive tarpaulin and rope to build makeshift shelters.

Um Mohammed lives with her eight children in Deir Hassan camp in Idlib, Syria. Her family’s food parcel from Islamic Relief relieves hunger in Ramadan, but hostilities escalate in the northwest and many more flee in search of safety.
Islamic Relief is there to provide food, tents, blankets and cash for heating and clothing. We give wheat to local bakeries so they can bake free bread for the most vulnerable. We help run 80 mobile emergency units and hospitals. Tens of thousands of people rely on the clean drinking water, sanitation facilities and hygiene items we provide.
