Summary

When the earthquake of October 2005 struck the mountainous regions of Kashmir, it caused thousands of deaths and left millions homeless. The ICRC found itself in a race against time to help the sufferers. Eight-year-old Sony is one of the evacuees - his hand is saved by an operation in Muzaffarabad Field Hospital.
