AJWS has been working in Pakistan since the 2005 earthquake. With five trusted grantee partners on the ground we are well-positioned to respond to this latest crisis.
AJWS grantee partners in Pakistan are saving lives by mobilizing emergency support for victims of the flooding and helping to prevent the spread of disease. They are erecting temporary shelters for those whose homes have been destroyed, facilitating access to clean drinking water in government relief camps and working with local and national government authorities to expedite the relief process. As a result of the 2005 earthquake, these organizations already have extensive experience in responding to disasters.
