- all tents / blankets / supplies (~500) have been moved from Karachi to Islamabad, and subsequently distributed via trucks to areas starting in Mansehra towards Balakot, Bagh and Muzaffarabad. needless to say, the demand is far exceeding the supply.

- architect Yawar Jilani flew to the northern areas on monday with his survey team, and has informed us of the utter devastation he has seen. they arranged 4 truckloads of water bottles in jerry cans which were dispatched on Tuesday to balakot and adjoining villages.

- 4 truckloads of vegetables were immediately dispatched on monday night towards Muzaffarabad, where distress calls for food for villagers by our engineers on ground were answered.

- we have news of survivors from 80-90 families in the village of moosa in the mountains on the road towards muzaffarabad. among the many affectees we will try to dispatch care packages to them as well.

- we are waiting on delivery of tents & blankets from dubai and other areas so we can dispatch them. zero net inventory is being maintaned at both karachi and islamabad which is a major success of the logistical effort - our teams in both areas are dispatching truckloads & flightloads without delay.

- the relief coordinator, Adnan Asdar has moved to Islamabad and in the future will give us daily reports of what was accomplished in the preceding 24 hours.
aside from monetary donations, we are requesting donations for heavy-duty tents and blankets (in bulk loads) to be sent directly to the TCF Relief Fund Warehouse in Islamabad, clearly marked with contents and quantities for tracking & accountability:
