Thank You for Helping Pakistan's Flood Victims
As we wrap up our project, Give Health Services to Pakistan Flood Victims (#6047) on Global Giving, we sincerely thank you for your dedication and generous contributions to SHINE Humanity for helping the flood victims of Pakistan.
Pakistan suffered devastating floods of historic proportions in 2010 followed by lesser degrees of flooding in 2011 and 2012. With the prompt help of our Global Giving supporters and that of other individuals and organizations, such as International Development & Relief Foundation, we were able to provide emergency medical and humanitarian relief during the acute phase of the disaster followed by provision of medical care through clinics and a hospital in the rehabilitation phase. Our Global Giving supporters donated a total of $274,056 throughout the duration of this project.
Your contributions have enabled us to help over 140,000 beneficiaries in the flood affected areas of Pakistan since 2010, with the provision of food packages, hygiene kits, livelihood support, and medicines as the needs arose. As the need declined in other areas and the victims returned to their homes, we focused our efforts at our facilities in Charsadda [KPK], Swat [KPK], and Shikarpur [Sindh] following initial services at multiple centers in all four provinces in 2010. Over 50,000 beneficiaries have received medical treatment, including outpatient and urgent care services, during 2012.
SHINE Humanity is continuing to provide support for the treatment of sick children admitted to the R.B.U.T Civil Hospital in Shikarpur, a flood affected area, where we have been helping since 2010. Around 1000-1200 sick children are admitted for treatment at the Pediatric Ward each month. Most of the children suffer from diarrhea, respiratory tract infections, anemia, and varying degrees of malnutrition. Besides the provision of free medicines, we aim to improve the health of the children through education of the mothers, ensuring all children are immunized, and providing nutritional support for the children who need additional supplements. The people of Shikarpur have suffered from flooding in their area for three years in a row, impeding their ability to move ahead from the devastation in a meaningful way. We ask you to please continue supporting our efforts for the needy people of Pakistan by contributing to our Global Giving project “Improve Health for Mothers & Children in Pakistan (#7004)”. As 2012 draws to a close, please make a tax-deductible contribution through Global Giving to help our project beneficiaries.
We thank you for all your help in the past and look forward to your continued support. SHINE Humanity wishes you and your loved ones a happy, healthy, and prosperous year ahead.
