Emergency Operation - Natural Disaster

Photo: 
Summary: 

Pakistan, 18th October 2005.

Distibution of food to the population in the region of Komikot Jund Gran area.

Among the many food distributions undertaken by WFP today this particular one targeted 18 villages in the area distributing BP5 and High Energy biscuits.
The convoy consisted of two trucks (a light one and a heavy one) and a light vehicle 4x4.
At approximately 8km from the final destination the road was not accessible for the large truck due damage that the road suffered after the earthquake. In order to proceed with the distibution the smaller truck and the 4x4 were used as sattelites going to and fro from the truck to bring the food to the final distribution point.

A farmer shows us the ruins of his house and the makeshift tent that he's living in with his family.
