Displaced people of Hunza struggle to move on...

Lal Bano stares ahead — a blank expression on her face. On 4 January 2010, her life was forever changed when a landslide buried the entire village of Attabad in the Hunza valley.

She lost six members of her family in a matter of seconds.

Naseem, a fellow survivor who barely escaped with the clothes on her back, recounts the tragic event: “I was up on my roof when I suddenly heard loud noises. Everyone in the village started yelling and running around, telling others to run for safety. I was frightened and started running also. It came like a whirlwind and destroyed everything.”

    The plight of these people on harm's way is something that has stirred the deepest empathy within me and my colleagues. It is painful that I cannot do anything about it, except share my concern and pray for their well being, and the success of the engineering work underway. I am watching by satellite as the lake grows, I am reading the blogs and news stories, and if there is any way I can help in Pakistan, I will try my best.
