Poster of the Northern Tanzania Earthquake of 10 September 2016 - Magnitude 5.9
The September 10, 2016 M 5.9 earthquake near the west shore of Lake Victoria in northern Tanzania occurred as the result of shallow oblique faulting within the lithosphere of the Nubia (Africa) plate. The focal mechanism solution for the earthquake indicates rupture occurred on a moderately dipping fault. This earthquake has caused a significant damage to many households in the whole Kagera Region. Most of the affected families are poor. They have a wide range of needs from emergency shelter, blankets, medical help as well as rebuilding their damaged houses.
Fundraising efforts are being led by Kagera Association of North America (KANA), which is working with the Regional Disaster Relief Committee to distribute collected donations to the affected families. A number of KANA members will also be on the ground to provide further feedback to KANA about areas that need the most help. KANA will report to all donors how the donations have been spent.
