Children in Pakistan

"Nearly six months after a 7.6 earthquake devastated northwest Pakistan, international relief and development organisation World Vision has shifted its focus from relief to helping communities rebuild livelihoods, restart education and restore hope for their children. Programmes to restart livelihoods in on-farm and off-farm activities have been drafted with input from communities where World Vision plans to work. The organisation is working to establish 40 temporary schools, with the view to reconstruct 50 permanent schools in the Siran valley. . . .Children were disproportionately impacted in the earthquake that struck when many were in school. More than 19,000 were killed and 2.2 million affected. Some 3.5 million families were rendered homeless." Reuters Foundation AlertNet Link to Article (last visited 4-5-06 NVS)
