Relief for November 2020 LoC Victims
Many innocent civilians were affected by a ceasefire violation along the Line of Control (LoC) between Pakistan and India in November which resulted in the loss of life and property.
Residents on the Pakistan LoC were facing some tough few months as temperatures dropped below freezing and many villages would have been cut off by the snow. Thanks to our generous donors, over £65,000 was raised in under 3 days to support the affected people.
Hundreds of food packs, quilts, and CGI sheets to put on roofs to allow snow to fall off easily and minimise damage to houses were provided to the victims in various locations within Neelam and Leepa Valleys. Families who had their houses completely destroyed were given 2.5 lakh rupee cheques each to rebuild their homes and 50,000-rupee cheques each were issued to families who incurred partial damage to their homes. This was one of the most dangerous and toughest trips faced by Team KORT due to the ongoing cross-border firing and adverse weather conditions.
Thank you to all our donors who supported this appeal and a special thank you to our staff and Muskorteers who went above and beyond the call of duty to support humanity in their time of need.
