The Mobile Medical Team has so far carried out eight successful camps till date. They have treated 1,735 patients to date. These camps are located at Tent house, Sabzi Mandi and Tando Allahyar. Affected areas are being targeted with the help of local people and the Mobile Medical Team after getting a survey report from sources that visited the area and then establishes a Free Medical Camp for the Flood victims including Men, Women and Children. 

The Mobile Medical Team includes two doctors, four paramedical staff and one volunteer. Patients are first diagnosed by the doctor and are provided with a prescription slip. As a second step, the patient is guided to the paramedical staff for further services and free medicines. The flood victims are also given guidance on prevention from different diseases and infections, along with treatment. 

Female and children are being checked by one doctor while the males are being checked another. According to the doctors, the most commonly-found diseases & infections are Gastroenteritis, Malaria, Conjunctivitis, ENT Infections, hematological diseases and skin infections.
