Silver Spring, MD, October 27, 2005 --(PR.com)-- With the death toll at 30,000 and rising, immediate relief is needed. HF USA, an independent, not-for-profit humanitarian relief organization with sister organizations in several countries around the world, quickly mobilized by sending teams of medical personnel and cartons of food, water, and supplies to the region. Presently, teams from the U.S., England, Germany, and Pakistan have set up camps in the worst affected areas, including Muzaffarabad, Balakot, and Rawalkot. These camps are providing shelter for the thousands displaced, as well as meals, water, clothing, blankets, and medical care. 120 volunteers are manning the camps with more arriving in the coming weeks. HF teams, made up of both medical and non-medical volunteers, are in constant rotation. At writing, HF is awaiting an extra provision of 3,000 blankets, clothing, water, and other supplies from the U.K. Doctors and paramedics are working around the clock to care for the thousands injured in this horrific catastrophe. Along with two tons of essential medicines and bandages, doctors also have ten IHP (emergency health packs) at their disposal. Across the border, a forty-foot container of clothing, food, and water has arrived in Indian-held Kashmir and is being distributed to the earthquake victims in the region, Continued donations to Humanity First organizations worldwide are being distributed as they arrive.
