On Monday 26 October 2015 an earthquake of 7.5 magnitude struck Pakistan, Afghanistan and India.

Responding to the news ActionAid’s International Programme Manager, John Abuya, said:
 
“ActionAid is in touch with our offices and local partners in Pakistan and Afghanistan to understand the situation and impact of the earthquake.

“Coming exactly six months after the quakes which devastated Nepal, this is a reminder that many communities remain at risk from earthquakes. We are closely monitoring the situation and will issue further updates as information becomes available.”
