Our work in Kashmir involves both continuous development and responding to any emergency. Kashmir, is a region full of natural beauty in the Himalayan and Karakoram mountain ranges. India, Pakistan and China all claim partial or complete ownership of Kashmir. People call it “heaven on earth.”
Indian controlled Kashmir is approximately 60% of the total of Kashmir in terms of its area. The Kashmir conflict is a territorial conflict primarily between India and Pakistan, having started just after the partition of Indian Sub-Continent in 1947. India and Pakistan have fought three wars over Kashmir, including the Indo-Pakistani Wars of 1947 and 1965, as well as the Kargil War of 1999. Due to this instability in the area and damage caused by natural disasters, the habitants of this region needs aid from time to time.
Pakistan controlled Kashmir is approximately 40% of the total of Kashmir in terms of its area. Over the years due to severe damage caused by the first earthquake in the mid-2000s, again in 2015, flooding and other natural disasters, the area has fallen deeper into poverty. People of Kashmir are very friendly and appreciative of the support they receive. Our aim is to continue our projects within the area.
