Water and Sanitation: Flood Relief Appeal...

Assalaam Alykum,

Helping Hand for Relief and Development is on the ground helping the affected. And among the many issues that the flood victims are dealing with the main one is of water sanitation. There isn’t enough clean drinking water for the flood victims.
A sip of the contaminated water can be deadly. HHRD is urging everyone to donate to Water for Life program to help the flood victims with clean water and sanitation.

The 16 HHRD medical relief clinics providing health treatment are seeing increasing number of cases, mostly related to water borne diseases. They are seeing cases of diarrhea, skin allergies, eye infections, scabies, malaria and malnutrition. Due to extended starvation and low immune health many are vulnerable to epidemic diseases and children are especially susceptible.

The ones that have survived are not only faced with health conditions but will also have problems making a living for themselves due the unprecedented damage to crops and livestock.

Helping Hand for Relief and Development will be offering Interest Free loans to flood victims so they can start rebuilding their lives and take the right steps towards the development of their and countries future.
