Project Update - Swat

A 22 year old young man came to our Bagh- Dheri, Swat Healthcare center on August 24, 2012,  complaining of fever with chills and shivering, vomiting and generalized weakness. Prior to coming to our facility, he had been to other general physicians and had been treated with antibiotics without any resolution of his symptoms. 

On examination he was found to have an enlarged liver and spleen besides a temperature of 102o F. On investigation, he was found to have malaria for which he was given the appropriate anti- malarial medicines with tips on future prevention for himself and his family.  This young man hails from a poor family and he  was  very happy  to finally be  diagnosed correctly and  to be given the treatment free of cost. We are equally happy to have served him in getting better.

The SHINE Humanity-CDRS Healthcare facility in Bagh Dheri completed  one year of services  for  the needy  people of Bagh Dheri and the surrounding mountainous region of Swat, on August 18, 2012. This facility was set up to provide primary care, urgent care and maternity and child care for the disaster affected people of this area with funding from International Development & Relief Foundation  and individual donors who have given directly or via Global Giving. We have served  35,532 beneficiaries during this year. 46 percent of the beneficiaries have been women and 45 percent were children. We are encouraged by this high percentage of female patients which denotes the confidence of the people  of this patriarchal society in our services.

 We would like to thank all our supporters once again  for their generous contributions during the year and we look forward to your continued support for the people of Swat and our other service areas.
