A devastating 5.8 magnitude earthquake has struck Pakistan and has pushed communities into crisis.
With the core 1km southeast of Mirpur in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), the quake was so strong that tremors have also been felt in various cities as far as Islamabad, Lahore, Jhelum, Swat and Abbotabad.
As a result of the catastrophic earthquake, communities have been torn apart.
To date, 39 people have reportedly died and over 700 more have been injured. Homes and roads have been damaged, leaving local men, women and children displaced and in critical need of shelter, food and emergency care.
Backing global climate strikes taking place today, Islamic Relief is demanding action now to avert catastrophe and emerge from the climate emergency.
