The October 26 earthquake killed hundreds of people in Pakistan, destructed as many homes and caused irreparable loss to many. With winter fast approaching, people now look to rebuild their homes and find refuge from the cold. Amidst the destruction in some of the worst hit areas of the country, the Kalash tribe strive to go on with their lives.

Here are a few photos of the tribe who continue with their daily lives as the government promises to rebuild their homes.
