SHINE Humanity, alongwith its field partner, Comprehensive Disaster Response Services(CDRS) continued providing services to disaster-affected communities in Pakistan. Seventy-five percent of our patients are women and children. Here is a summary of our activity for the month of September: 

 

Post-Earthquake Rehabilitation Projects

 Chikar, Azad Kashmir: During the month of September our teams were able to treat 1,832 patients in Chikar. They also spent on medicines, staff salaries, hospital repair, ambulance repair, incentives for government doctors, utilities and management.Team members were able to treat a number of patients when an outbreak of gastro-intestinal epidemic hit a village. These patients came with severe dehydration and diarrhea from Danna and Andra Seri, Sulmia. There was not any other facility nearby to respond quickly and abruptly, without our presence in Chikar,  these patients would not have made it to the DHQ Hattian Bala. Our staff quickly and efficiently responded to the epidemic and dealt with the situation with commitment. We also followed up with a Emergency Response Team dispatched to the village to treat severe dehydrated patients who were in danger. These patients were were provided proper medical care for three days and were kept under observation. 

Namhother, Azad Kashmir: The team carried out health checks and provided medicines to the needy. A total of 155 patients were treated.

Gundi Gran, Azad Kashmir: Our team provided staff salaries and medicines to 290 patients.

 

Flood Rehabilitation Projects

Shikar Pur, Sindh: Our focus is on providing child health care and medicines here. We were able to treat a total of 1,213 children in the Shikar Pur District Hospital Pediatric Ward.

Swat, Khyber Pakhtunwa:  In September, we treated 2,429 patients.We have improved our services for Swat. The new Labor Room is well-equipped with incubators, baby warmers, suction machines and all other necessary equipment and supplies. We have started providing 24 hours service and were able to retain patients in our female and children wards.  We have also been able to install power generator to cover electricity break down.
