Focus Humanitarian Assistance Pakistan

FOCUS Pakistan works to save lives, reduce suffering and build resilience in the communities prone to man-made and natural disasters - from the mountainous to coastal areas of Pakistan. It is the lead implementing agency for humanitarian assistance of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) in Pakistan, and draws upon its extensive experience in disaster management and response. With the vision to become a seamless world class community-based emergency humanitarian assistance organization, FOCUS Pakistan started its services in the mid 1990s when Pakistan was challenged by the huge influx of Afghan refugees. Approximately 43 000 members of the Afghan community were facilitated by FOCUS in returning to their home country.
Since 1998, FOCUS has offices in Islamabad, Karachi, Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral. Each office is managed by professional staff and supported by volunteers.
