Appeal for the SHINE Humanity/ CDRS Pediatric Ward in Shikarpur After volunteering with the SHINE Humanity Flood relief team in Shikarpur, Sindh, with her colleague Dr. Sara Khan in early 2011, Dr. Aliya Ali commented about not expecting "mother/child health getting better" soon [Global Giving March 2, 2011; Report]. Most of the cases they saw were women and children. So, with the aim of continuing to serve the children of the disaster affected area of Shikarpur, and with your generous contributions, we were able to transition out of flood-related medical camps and provide support for the Pediatric unit and the SHINE Humanity/ CDRS Pediatric Ward at the R.B.U.T district hospital in Shikarpur, where we are providing quality care for 800-1000 children every month. These children, whose parents cannot afford much, are admitted for a variety of diseases, some minor and others life threatening - diseases ranging from measles, tetanus, malaria, anemia, malnutrition, respiratory infections and an increase in the number of cases of diarrhea with the onset of summer. Now, we are facing a crisis as support from other sources are being withdrawn and the need for continuing our services has grown. We appeal to you once again for helping the sick and needy children of Shikarpur - - $20 will pay for the medical care for 1 child requiring simple treatment at the hospital - $50 will pay for two weeks of nutrient-packed meals and milk to be given to patients discharged from the malnutrition wards - $200 will pay the 30 day salary of one medical technician or pharmacist - $500 will pay for the 30 day salary of one pediatric doctor or nurse trained in neo-natal care - $1,500 will pay for running the wards for a month We ask you to please give generously to help us keep the children's wards running- a recurring donation from you will ensure us of the continuation of services. Thank you so much for your support.
