2 months in..Pakistan Flood Relief

Assalaamu Alykum,

Initially HHRD was running 13 medical camps across Pakistan; volunteer doctors, paramedics and ambulances would set up clinic every morning and close at sunset, though a few were running 24 hours a day.

Alhamdulillah as the water is receding; Helping Hand for Relief and Development is changing its course of action to help the flood victims of Pakistan.

HHRD has now established 8 field hospitals, which will be a permanent fixture to the heavily flood affected areas.

2 field hospitals in Pakhtunkhwa Khaiber, 2 field hospitals in Southern Punjab, 3 field hospitals in Sindh and 1 field hospital in Baluchistan.

In the midst of tragedy, on September 25th, 2010 a new life was born in one of HHRD’s medical camps. In such adversity there was news that allowed the family of the young boy to rejoice. It was by the grace of God, then with the help of donors like you and a very dedicated HHRD team that such a miracle was possible. He is among many children who are born after the worst disaster in the history has hit Pakistan.

It becomes our responsibility to give these new lives a better future in Pakistan.

Over 1 million meals have been distributed across Pakistan. Victims have lost everything in the flood; there is sheer hopelessness in the morale of the flood victims.

HHRD has been sending continuous containers to Pakistan from the US to help with medical equipments, food, blankets, shoes and basic necessity items.
