In response to the devastating land sliding incident that struck the union council Patreend (Damishi, Abhiyal), the Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) AJK chapter has taken immediate action to support the affected communities by distributing essential relief items.
The PRCS AJK, with its unwavering commitment to humanitarian aid and disaster response, has been on the ground since the tragedy occurred.
