Helping Pakistan one step at a time


Have You Forgotten? October 8th 2005

Pakistan Quake One Year AgoOctober 8th 2005, changed Pakistan forever, at precisely 08:50:38 a massive earthquake struck the northern areas of Pakistan which devastated the entire country over 80,000 lives perished in a blink of an eye, thousands were displaced resulting in millions of dollars in damage. The entire country joined hands in unison to help the suffering, but even more needs to be done.

In an effort to raise awareness for the victims of the Earthquake in Pakistan we propose to launch a Blog Day, requesting all bloggers to make a post about the earthquake which struck our country one year back by actually asking yourself


When making that specific post we ask you to do is provide a track-back to this post on the website using this specific URL this will allow us to keep track of everyone who has NOT forgotten.the Earthquake in Pakistan

If you don’t have a blog then share your experience with the world on this blog by writing a story or a life changing experince about the earthquake in Pakistan

    […] But even in the panic, I don’t think I was prepared for the sheer scale of devastation that the earthquake would have left behind […]

    I have not forgotten about the deadly earthquake in Pakistan, which took so many lives and destroyed families in minutes and hours. This is a time when we all should start using our brains and come up with a simple conclusion being a True MUSLIM that ALLAH (SWT) is not happy from this nation or maybe there are alot of things we need to change around Pakistan to make it a better place for our children.
    I will be creating a PowerPoint Presentation for my University in Texas, USA about the Pakistan Earthquake and the developments. To remind the world not to forget a disastrous time marked in the history of this world.
