International Rescue Committee Teams in Pakistan Are Responding to Massive Earthquake in Region
The International Rescue Committee is dispatching emergency response teams to areas of Pakistan that were hit by today's earthquake.
We want to do all we can to help, said Heng Djin Tjik, deputy director of IRC programs for Pakistan, who is based in Islamabad. We are sending staff members who can provide a range of emergency assistance, just as we did when Pakistan was hit by severe flooding earlier this year.
The IRC has been providing humanitarian assistance in Pakistan since 1980, when large numbers of refugees entered the country from Afghanistan in the wake of the Soviet invasion.
