Field work in the earthquake affected areas, especially AJK and Northern NWFP. Volunteers should be able to walk long distances in mountainous terrain. Volunteers are needed to work with children, women and men in these areas.

Islamabad based relief work: Volunteers are needed to sort out and handle relief supplies, work with nurses, doctors and other professionals, and provide counseling support to young children affected by the earthquake from the disaster-hit areas.

If you are 18 years and above, enthusiastic, in good health, physically fit enough to walk and work in mountain terrain in rotation periods of around 5 days, and willing to give willingly of your time, please call the numbers given below. You will be matched with work according to your time availability, interest and skills.

College and university students, or those who have completed their education, or are in between various stages of it, or are unemployed, are especially encouraged to volunteer their time and energy.

We are organizing basic training for those who will be doing field work – so this is also an opportunity to improve your skills and gain some hands-on experience while you help those in need.

    For any national or international relief team, my 15 days (may be more) personal volunteer services are available. I am 35 male, a law graduate and MBA – working as Manager Manpower Development. My social and professional experiences include personnel administration, HR development, reports and surveys, leadership & motivation, and event & crises management. Being a doer, I can do anything from dressing and nursing of injured to any manual labor. However I can get out my best in monitoring, supervision and motivation. Any organization/ group/ NGO/ philanthropic individual who is already engaged or planning to start rehabilitation activities in the earthquake stricken areas of Pakistan may contact me for my personal volunteer contribution.
