Balakot, North West Frontier Province (NWFP), PAKISTAN
Twenty-seven-year-old Mohammed Rafique is still living in a refugee camp three months after his house was destroyed by the 2005 Kashmir earthquake. He recalls, 'I had to walk several miles to get help. Then I was transported to this refugee camp'. The 7.6 magnitude quake that hit the area on 8th October 2005 killed over 80,000 people. Balakot was one of the worst hit towns as it was situated close to the epicentre of the earthquake.
