Helping Hand for Relief and Development is now collecting Basic Necessity Items (In-Kind Donations). The relief items should not be “used items”; food items should be Halal only; medicines should have sufficient expiry date.
These must be packed in 15 " x 15 " x 12 " cartons.
To make things a little easier for us, it would be ideal if smaller groups could get together and drop the items at the collection locations.
For a complete list of drop off locations and items needed please visit: www.ReliefForPakistan.org. This website is Helping Hand for Relief and Development’s dedicated website for Pakistan Flood Relief.
Medical Relief update:
HHRD Health and Medical Camps are providing medical treatment in Mianwali, Layyah, DG Khan, Charsadda, Dir, Swat, Nowshera, Nawabshah and Sakkar.
Diarrhoea, Scabies and Skin Infections are among the most common cases being seen at the medical camps. These diseases can be life threatening for the victims affected by floods who have low immune systems like the 3.5 million children now at risk of deadly water-borne diseases.
A total of 27, 483 patients have been seen at HHRD medical camps as of August 18, 2010 of which 12,087 were children.
There is a great need for assistance to these victims. HHRD Team would strongly urge you to come forward and give in any capacity. Because every penny counts and will be the difference between relief and loss.
One in 10 Pakistanis Affected - 20 Million Flood Victims - 3.5 Million Children at Risk of Deadly Water-Borne Diseases - A THIRD of Pakistan Submerged Under Water
