Habitat Responds To Pakistan Earthquake08_16_2006_pakistan_earthquake-2.jpg

Habitat is working with the government and partners to rebuild and repair homes. A key part of the response is the Habitat Resource Center, where Habitat expertise and facilities are made available to train and assist communities to rebuild their homes. Habitat for Humanity Japan is working closely with the program.

Shortly before the earthquake, Habitat for Humanity was in the process of formally establishing its presence in Pakistan. Over time, Habitat hopes to establish a long-term program in the country.
