Pakistan Flood Relief Update.....

Assalaamu Alykum,

Medical Relief:

On October 4th, 2010, the United Nations has reported suspected 250,000 cases of malaria (which is expected to increase to about 2-million), 881,000 cases of diarrhea, 840,000 cases of skin diseases and almost 1 million cases of respiratory disorders."

Keeping this in perspective, with the slowly receding water, HHRD has now established 8 field hospitals under large tents. They will be turned into permanent fixtures in the heavily flood-affected areas as the need persists; with a special focus on women and children. To date there have been 12 safe deliveries in the HHRD Medical Clinics. We pray that these children remain healthy and protected from the devastation of the floods.

In-Kind Donations:

HHRD has been sending continuous in-kind donation containers every week to Pakistan from various U.S. cities, to help with medical equipments, food, blankets, personal hygiene things, shoes, and basic necessities. To date, $4.5 million worth of items have been sent for the flood victims, including medical equipment worth $900,000. $1 million worth of goods have been distributed among the flood victims already. Thanks to all the hard working volunteers who helped send these containers to Pakistan.

Food Distribution:

HHRD has distributed 2.4 million meals in the most affected flood areas to date.
Pakistan Flood Relief is not prevalent in the news anymore; 20 million people are affected, 14 million are in need of emergency health care, 6 million are in need of food and children are affected the most. Please continue your support.

You can visit HHRD's dedicated website for Pakistan flood relief; for latest updates.
