Humanitarian Man

Wednesday, November 30, 2005

From all over the world, and away from the media glare, volunteers have gone to help in the rebuilding of Pakistan since last month's disastrous earthquake. Who are they, why did they go, and what did they find when they were there?

Although the earthquake in Kashmir has dropped out of most of the news, many volunteers are still working in the field, trying to save the lives of villagers who have lost their homes -and may lose more with the onset of winter.

MUZAFFARABAD, Pakistan (Reuters) -- Hundreds of people, most of them children, have contracted pneumonia in Pakistan's earthquake-stricken zone as harsh winter weather sets in, health officials said on Tuesday.

It’s been a while since I have been able to post. The photos below are all of the Balakot area of Northern Pakistan.

I would like to say a special hello to the development class in Tulsa Oklahoma who is following this blog and the developments of this tragedy in Pakistan. I encourage all of you to get involved in humanitarian work and stay at the cutting edge of new technologies and strategies that need to be implemented in the humanitarian world to reduce suffering.

I will be doing some heavy traveling in the next couple weeks evaluating the UN food distribution sites that are being run by local NGO’s and will also be inspecting a number of field hospitals in the worst effected areas. I will be working on behalf of a large international NGO who has taken on a lot of responsibility in this crisis and has the insight to be looking forward with a five year plan.

Try to get some more photos up soon, but bandwidth here is extremely problematic.
