Balochistan is a province located in the South-West of Pakistan and the South-East of Iran. Balochistan has been at risk of recurrent natural disasters of all sorts, such as cyclones, floodings and earthquakes. Unfortunately, as the disasters strike, these areas often lack preventative measures and support to meet environmental standards. Additionally, there is a profound lack of funding for the purpose of rebuilding their homes and community, eventually leading to a backwards motion in the development of that society.
The recent earthquake in Balochistan was of a high magnitude and took approximately 825 lives and hundreds more were injured.
