Immediately after the GLOF event damaged over 40 households in Badswat and its surrounding villages in Immit Valley in Gilgit-Baltistan, the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH) worked closely with the Pakistan Army and the Gilgit-Baltistan Disaster Management Authority (GBDMA) to set temporary tents and provide food and non-food items to the disaster-affected families.

Continuing its response, in the second phase of its relief activities, AKAH is providing over 10 tons of food supply to 44 households to address their food supply needs over the next two months. In addition, AKAH is also providing the affected households with non-food relief items including hygiene kits, bedding and kitchen sets.
