The earthquake destroyed more than 80% of the infrastructures and buildings of the North West Frontier Province and left in its wake hundreds of villages without water and other basic infrastructure.
Many members of the “NGOnet for Women and Children Rights” network, particularly the ones which were based in the region, rushed immediately to provide relief to the earthquake victims. KESSA DIMITRA was one of them.
Following the earthquake and in cooperation with the NGOs Hellenic Rescue Team-Volos Branch and One Earth, KESSA DIMITRA started an awareness raising campaign in order to solicit donations and use them to buy winter blankets. The campaign focused on the cities of Larissa and Volos and the money collected was sent by KESSA DIMITRA to its local partner Khwendo Kor, so that to proceed with the purchasing of the blankets from the local market. The distribution of the blankets benefited 100 households and approximately 600 earthquake victims.
