Seven photographs depicting the sufferings of the earthquake victims due to snowfall in Chitral and Ghizar (GB)
8 years ago
Snowfall in the mountainous areas of Gilgt-Baltistan and Chitral is adding to the miseries of the earthquake affected people, who have lost their houses, belongings, cattle pans, and stored grains and firewood. The government has provided single-file tents to the affected people, which offers little or no resistance against the severe cold weather, especially because cannot light fire inside their tents. There reports that some NGOs have distributed double-file tents, but thousands of people remain deprived, and prone to bone-chilling weather.

The government is not doing enough!! Tents?? Please… these people need proper shelters and houses, where they can live, warm up, cook and sleep. In such cse, why isn’t the army helping? Bringing supplies, rebuilding houses. Are there any collections in place to gather necessary things and clothes for people? Government officials responsible for such support should go there and spend a few days and nights in the tents.
