ADC Calls On Community To Help South Asian Earthquake Victims

October 13, 2005
Washington, DC — The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) calls on all people to extend a hand of support to the victims of the earthquake that hit India and Pakistan on October 8. The devastating earthquake has already claimed the lives of 40,000 people living in Kashmir, the disputed territory between the two countries. In addition, 3.5 million people were rendered homeless and remain until today without shelter. Five days later, the estimate of the damage caused by the South Asian area is still unknown, but the United Nations launched an emergency appeal for $272m to help the victims.
