A large portion of Shishkat Village was submerged after the deadly January 4th landslide at Attabad blocked the flow of the Hunza River in 2010. Six years have passed since the deadly landslide disaster, but even now a large portion of Shishkat is under water.
Moreover, the farmers who lost their fields, orchards and other properties remain uncompensated. Many families are still forced to live in tinned shelters within Shishkat, as well as in Aliabad town, in central Hunza.
This photo feature highlights the plight of the farmers and land owners of Shishkat and other affected village of the Gojal Valley, Upper Hunza, who are waiting for government support.
