CDRS 1st Quarter 2014 Achievements

Dear Friends of CDRS,

Here's a summary of our achivements in the first quarter of 2014. CDRS owes a very special Thank You to every one of you who have supported our work and made all of this possible! 

1) CDRS is responding to a drought / famine crisis in the Thar Desert in remote areas of Interior Sindh. Collaborating with individual volunteers and partners in Karachi (Naya Jenevan, Empower the Future and Resettling the Indus). To date, this effort has put together three trips delivering food, water and medicines to more than 400 families in desperate need. 

2) The Mother and Child Health Center in Northern Swat continues to manage over 2,000 patients per month, providing lab, x-ray, ulrasound, clean ward, oxgen, nebulizer, emergency services, ambulance and a fully stocked pharmacy. See photos here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.500186853337405.112203.300942176595208&type=3 

3) We've partnered with World Champion Field Hockey Player Mansoor Ahmed to initiate a sports coalition of like-minded individulas and organizations who want to collaborate on sports and recreation projects for poor children in Pakistan.

4) CDRS YOUTH was formed to give students and young people in Pakistan an avenue for collaborating with our missions and volunteering their time and effort to make a better Pakistan. Our first chapters are at Jinnah Sindh Medical University in karachi and Roots International College in Islamabad.

CDRS TEAM CONTINUES DOING AMAZING WORK

Dear Friends of CDRS,

A lot has happened in just a few short months. We’d like to share just a few of our notable achievements and experiences with you. CDRS owes a very special Thank You to every one of you who have supported our work and made all of this possible! 

KASUR FLOOD MISSION 
We concluded our emergency relief deployment in Kasur at the end of September. The area had been hit by massive flooding in early August. CDRS mobile medical teams (assisted by GDRO, UKMAP and Wali Trust) were sent in shortly after to assess the impact to the health and well-being of local men, women and children. Our primary diagnoses consisted of upper and lower respiratory infection, acute diarrhea, malaria, a range of skin diseases, muscular aches and weakness, tonsillitis, arthritis, anemia, urinary tract infection, asthma, hypertension, gastritis, acid peptic disease, and various eye and ear infections. These (along with a host of other ailments) were treated across our seven medical camps, which cared for a total of 1,757 patients. See Kasur photos, patient contact and diagnosis reports here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.607891875900235.1073741832.300942176595208&type=1 

DENGUE FEVER OUTBREAK IN SWAT 
On September 11, 2013, WHO declared an outbreak of Dengue fever in the province of Swat. Saidu Sahriff Hospital in Mingora was overburdened with 2,727 affected persons. With support from MAP, a small team of one doctor, one operation theatre technician, one pharmacist and two male nurses were dispatched to perform operations on site. Seven volunteer medical students from The Sindh Medical College CDRS Student Chapter were also sent to provide support and educate residents on prevention. See Saidu Shariff Hospital photos here:

MEETING WITH PAKISTAN'S UN AMBASSADOR 
CDRS founder Todd Shea and son TJ Shea met with Masood Khan, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United Nations at his office in Manhattan. They discussed CDRS achievements and ongoing work in his homeland. Ambassador Khan agreed to speak at a future fundraiser to be held in New York City sometime in the future.

Here you can view a series of videos that discuss the societal ills plaguing Pakistan and the work of wonderful groups and individuals addressing these issues: http://www.thersa.org/events/video/pkcalling-videos 

PHILIPPINES DISASTER RESPONSE 
In our continuing commitment to respond to large disasters wherever they happen, CDRS sent a team to The Philippines within days after Typhoon Haitan with our longtime partners EMAPCT NW, who we have collaborated with in Haiti, Japan and Pakistan. Our team provided critical information and logistics support to dozens of emergency responders in the field and teams that are soon deploying to engage in long term rehabilitation project and provided logistical support and trucks to get shipments of food, water, clothing to villages in Tacloban, Samar, Sebu and Bantayan Island. We also liasoned with Rotary Club leader in the Disaster Zone and connected them to Rotarians in the US who want to help 
(This mission was funded directly by individual donors who wanted to support this specific mission, no funds earmarked for our Pakistan projects are ever used for any other reason). See Photos here:

We sincerely appreciate your taking time to catch up with our latest efforts. It is only because of the generous support of fantastic people like you that CDRS has been able to accomplish any of our great works. Pease make a contribution or pledge of any amount. Even if 5,000 people contributed $100 every year, we would have more than enough to continue our current projects and have enough left over to expand and help even more deserving people.

FUNDING SHORTAGE THIS WINTER
Right Now CDRS is short of funds for our Pakistan Projects this winter due to the unforseen postponement of large 
fundraising events until the Spring, and due to having no choice but to cancel two fundraisers in Toronto and Detroit in order to respond to the The Philippines disaster.

Here's some photos of our main project in Pakistan that I'm really struggling to pay for salaries, medical supplies, medicines and operational costs...

And our other important projects that despertately need help: https://www.facebook.com/CDRSPK/photos_albums

It is my humble request that you help with any amount possible to bridge our funding gap of 40,000 USD until March and share this message with your friends.

CDRS Spring Highlights !!!

Dr. Rukhsana Chaudhry working with schoolchildren

Mental Health Professionals, Orthopedic Surgeons, Eye Specialists Helping CDRS Beneficiaries
(Please see photos of Dr. Chaudhry's work attached with this report) 

Dr. Rukhsana Chaudhry, a clinical psychologist and Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology of the George Washington University volunteered with CDRS in May to work with women, girls, and boys during a mental health relief mission in Islamabad and Rawalpindi.

Dr. Chaudhry and CDRS visited the Pehli Kiran School System and introduced a self-esteem and empowerment model to work with girls who were identified as at-risk by their teachers. She also introduced a bullying prevention and education initiative while working with both boys and girls. Dr. Chaudhry worked with 48 children where she established twice weekly counseling groups, consisting of gender-specific groups. All the children were between the age of 6 and 14 years. In the younger–aged groups, she utilized art-based therapy techniques to explore the histories of the children and current environmental stressors while living in and around the slums of Islamabad. With the older-age groups, she utilized role-playing and a safe-space model, which ehlped the children explore ways to manage stress and to cope with violence in their communities.

Dr. Chaudhry also visited with the girls of our partner Saba Homes in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Saba Homes is a home for girls who have lost their parents and some have faced trauma before being rescued by Saghir Aslam and the wonderful staff at Saba Homes. Each of these girls expressed loneliness, confusion and struggle as they began to discuss their stories of losing their parents in the Kashmiri earthquake or due to illness. Utilizing a “Girls Only Safe Space” model, each of the girls shared feelings they had not shared before and began to put their own stories together which will help with their emotional recovery from the past tramua they faced. Dr. Chaudhry worked with 18 girls at Saba Homes.

Dr. Chaudhry also spent a day with teachers at Pehli Kiran School, where she provided training to teachers on bullying prevention and intervention. She also provided training on recognizing signs of trauma in children and ways to talk to children about their feelings when the teachers believe a child is struggling with difficult experiences.

Orthopedic and Eye Camps in Swat This Month
CDRS staff will be assisting visiting doctors who are volunteering at the Swat Health Facility to provide Orthopedic Surgeries from June 16 to 22. One of the finest Orthopedic specialists in the World, Dr. Amhad Gulzar, will be leading the team in performing knee, shoulder and hip replacement surgeries and will also treat the patients who suffer from polio deformities. An Eye Camp will also be held at our Swat Facility from 27 June to July 1. 1,500 eye patients are expectee to be treated.

A Great Start for CDRS 2013 Operations

CDRS has had a great start in 2013. My team and I have been very busy with operations, new collaborations and expanded missions and have been coordinating with media partners and friends who are helping CDRS with more and better ways to inform our loyal supporters about our mission and reach new supporters who had never heard of us before.

CDRS has formed strategic partnerships to assist the efforts of great impementing organizations such as UM Healthcare, Hisaar Foundation, Rashidabad and Saba Trust Home for Girls. These four organizations are doing amazing work and CDRS will be working together with them on new and exising projects and using our contacts and networks to help ensure they’ll be able continue their important and noble missions.

CDRS has formed partnerships with The Association of Pakistani Physicians and Surgeons of The UK and UK Medical Aid for Pakistan. They contributed £6,000 (about $9,500) each to our Swat Mother and Child Health Center in the first quarter of 2013, and CDRS will begin implementing new projects with each of these esteemed organizations. And a Big Thanks goes out to to The British Pakistan Foundation, United Pakistan UK and Anwar Akhtar of www.thesamosa.co.uk for all their support with contacts and opportunities to promote our mission to potential supporters in the UK. 

We have completed our seventh consecutive successful independent audit and have begun working on new partnerships with The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government and The Pakistan Reconstruction & Rehabilitation Authority to build a new hospital in old Balakot. Each is providing $500,000 for the hospital construction towards the cost of $1.5 million. CDRS is currently working on grant proposals with large donors to raise the additional $500,000 needed for this important project, which will specialize in expert Mother & Child Health for hundreds of thousands of citizens in areas of Mansehra and all of Kohistan. The hospital which was provided in pre-fab structures after the earthquake was washed away in the 2010 great flood, and the people of Balakot urgently need a new facility. 

CDRS has also begun accelerating its volunteer program in 2013. Students Chapters of CDRS are being formed in several cities around the World, and the CDRS Student Chapter of Sindh Medical College (SMC) has nearly completed the first phase of its efforts to digitize all the data from our patient registers for their joint research project with CDRS. The SMC students are also arranging a second field trip to our Mother & Child Health Center in Swat and a trip is also being planned with the Allama Iqbal medical students. CDRS is also unveiling a new charitable tourism initiative with The Pakistan Tourism and Development Corporation and The KPK government so doctors, medical students and volunteers and their families can visit beautiful places like Khagan Valley, enjoying the sights and attractions while also providing healthcare services to the people living there. We’ll begin in Khagan Valley and expand from there.
