Pakistan Pleads for Help


October 9, 2005

by Kevin Caruso

One day after a devastating 7.6-magnitude quake struck northern Pakistan, the Pakistani government is pleading to the international community for help.

Pakistan is overwhelmed by the quake, and needs assistance in searching for survivors, freeing them from the rubble, and transporting them to hospitals.

Additionally, Pakistan is requesting supplies such as tents, blankets, medicine, and donations so that the country will be able to help those in need.

Lastly, Pakistan will need help in rebuilding the badly damaged infrastructure in the areas hit by the quake.

President George Bush spoke by phone with Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf, offering assistance in several areas.

"I expressed our nation's deepest condolences, and I told him we want to help in any way we can," Bush said after the phone call. "To that end, we've already started to send cash money and other equipment and goods that are going to be needed."

Numerous other countries and the United Nations are also quickly responding to the disaster.
