17 august 2007

The mullah (religious leader) of Massina Kalan, a small village high on the slopes of the mountains on the border between the North West Frontier Province and Kashmir is closing a village council meeting. The villagers congregated to talk about the reconstruction of the only accessroad to their remote settlement. Since the earthquake of 2005 this region has been virtually closed off from the rest of the province. Only just before last winter (more than a year after the earthquake) some shelters were built here for people who lost their houses.
