November 1st, 2010 marked the end of the emergency phase of the Pakistan flood relief work. Millions of men, women and children are returning to their homes to find lands water-logged and houses, schools and businesses destroyed. Poor mother and child health is a major concern in Pakistan, and will now worsen due to poor living conditions and inadequate food supplies.
SHINE Humanity has focused on advancing primary and maternal-child health in Pakistan since 2005. The agency's strategy is to revitalize healthcare infrastructure in disaster-affected areas. We work with credible partners to rehabilitate facilities, train local medical staff, put in place efficient management systems, and build sustainable healthcare initiatives.
SHINE Humanity is achieving this by running the pediatric ward of a district hospital in Shikarpur (Sindh), a mother-child initiative in Charsadda and Swat (Frontier), and developing a parallel program in Neelum Valley. We also support a Rural Healthcare Center and 10 other facilities in Kashmir which we successfully rehabilitated after the 2005 Earthquake. Through our sustainable healthcare program and disaster relief activities, SHINE Humanity has serves over 150,000 patients across the world and provided humanitarian assistance to thousands more.
