Why this project needed our help
Heavy monsoon rains in the Northern Areas of Pakistan caused major flooding in 2010. This destroyed much of Leh, the trekking capital of Ladakh in Northern India, resulting in hundreds of unaccounted deaths and loss of homes and agricultural land.
How Juniper Trust helped
Juniper Trust and KE raised £3500 to help flood victims. Clothes and heaters were bought to help villagers survive the winter and rebuilding started as soon as weather permitted. Juniper Trust donations were used to buy door frames for 5 houses costing approximately £550 per house.
What difference has been made?
No further donations are required for this project at the moment and Juniper Trust would like to thank Rimo Expeditions, with whom they have a long history of collaborating on projects in Ladakh.
