The modern countries of Pakistan and India came into existence in 1947 by "partition" of British India. Among the disputed issues was the territory called Kashmir. This has been temporarily divided into a northern section under the control of Pakistan and a southern section under the control of India. Wars have been fought over this unsettled issue.

An earthquake caused severe destruction throughout Kashmir. MSF was already working in Pakistan and India and was able to provide immediate assistance. I joined the team working in the Pakistan section.
