Pakistani children, whose families were among the 3 million people rendered homeless by the devastating earthquake that struck the Himalayan region on Oct. 8, show off the new gloves they received from Shelter Now International, to whom we have thus far sent $25,000 for their relief efforts. SNI is also distributing winterized tents, ground cloths, stoves, cooked food, and other urgently needed relief suppies.
Though it wasn’t a very merry Christmas, and probably won’t be a very happy new year, these gifts will certainly make the harsh Himalyan winter just a little bit more bearable for our dear friends in Pakistan.
