The tenth anniversary for Syban program was on the 11th of May. Syban Radio program was launched in Pakistan by Feba Pakistan in 2006 as a response to the devastating Muzaffarabad earthquake in late 2005, where 80 000 died and an estimated 4 million others left homeless. Various government agencies in Pakistan had asked HCR to help them respond to the earthquake at the same time Feba Pakistan was looking at FM radio involvement. The program led to an ongoing expansion of programs into FM broadcasting stations in other cities in partnership with local churches. HCR is currently evaluating transformative outcomes of the expansion program.
When Ross was in Pakistan in April/May the team began planning for tenth anniversary celebrations, asking the community what they thought of the Syban radio program.
