باكستان

Pakistan is located in southern Asia, bordering the Arabian Sea. It is between India on the east, Iran and Afghanistan on the west, and China in the north. Pakistan has been involved in small conflicts since its separation from British-India in 1947. The country has also become the victim of severe natural disasters, such as massive widespread flooding in the Khyberpakhtunkhwa region and Baluchistan and also massive magnitude earthquakes that have destroyed thousands of homes and buildings in its wake. These natural disasters continue to take their toll on the people who still suffer from a lack of adequate shelter. Life began working in Pakistan in November 2001, primarily in response to the U.S.-Afghan war, to deal with the refugee infiltration from Afghanistan into Pakistan. Life immediately began providing food, shelter, and clothing to the impoverished refugees. After the earthquakes and floods in the country, there were numerous families left without shelter, and Life saw to it that they received distributions of medical supplies, tents, food, and various other forms of emergency relief. Life is frequently transporting medical supplies, medicines and equipment to hospitals in Karachi, Pakistan through a partnership with MedWish International and the Association of Physicians of Pakistani Decent in North America.
