A powerful magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck Afghanistan's Herat province, resulting in a death toll exceeding 2,000 people. This earthquake ranks as one of the deadliest in the country in the past two decades.
Rescue operations are ongoing to save individuals trapped under the rubble, with concerns that the casualty count may rise further. Urgent assistance is needed in the affected areas, including tents, medical supplies, and food items.
The earthquake caused extensive damage, destroying thousands of homes and impacting several villages. The epicenter was located 40 kilometers northwest of Herat city, and strong aftershocks were felt in neighboring provinces.
Trained search and rescue teams with modern equipment are required to help those still trapped. The Alkhair Foundation is on the ground to provide aid and support to those in need.
