AKDN Takes Part in Global Earthquake PreparednessDushanbe, Tajikistan, 28 October 2011 – On October 20, 2011, over 20,000 people affiliated with AKDN institutions joined millions of other participants in the Great ShakeOut campaign, an annual earthquake drill designed to educate people and organizations on how to prepare and protect themselves at work, school and community centres during an earthquake.

The AKDN operates in some of the most seismically active areas of the world, including Central and South Asia. Much of its schools, health clinics, and social services are located in the earthquake- prone Karakorum, Pamir and Hindu Kush mountain ranges.
