SERVING THE UNREACHED

First emergency relief

Pak Mission Society / First emergency relief

In May 2005 PMT was registered under the Trusts Act 1882 in the district of Abbottabad with assistance from a lawyer who was able to guide Adeel and the PMT Board through the registration process. The lawyer, who had assisted in the registration process, gave Adeel 1,000 Pakistani rupees ($10) to open the bank account, PMT’s first ever donation. A devastating 7.6 magnitude of earthquake struck northern Pakistan and completely changed the direction of Adeel’s life and PMT’s trajectory. It also served as a reminder to Adeel that he had been called to serve in Pakistan and not in any other country.
Responding to the earthquake was PMT’s first emergency relief activity. It started with the idea of buying empty plastic bags, distributing these bags among local Christians with the appeal to donate clothes and other household items to share with victims of the earthquake.
