Update from :  The SHINE Humanity / CDRS Pediatric Center and the Civil Hospital Pediatric Ward  in Shikarpur, Sindh

The  SHINE Humanity / CDRS Pediatric Ward in Shikarpur, Sindh was established on October 1st 2010,  and this ward along with  the Civil Hospital Pediatric Ward  have been supported by the generous donations of SHINE Humanity and Global Giving supporters  since the times of the great floods in 2010.

About 800 to a 1000 pediatric patients are treated  at these two  wards every month.1813 children were provided care during March and April of this year. 47.55 percent of the patients were girls and 52.45 percent  were boys under the age of 14. Daily  patient data are maintained at this facility and reported to CDRS and SHINE every  month. 

After  a recent  monitoring visit,CDRS manager Abaid, reported most of the admitted children were suffering from Diarrhea, Malaria, Malnutrition, Measles and  Febrile Fits and  they were being ably  treated  by the doctor and staff appointed for these wards. Funding from our supporters helps pay for the doctor, staff and medicines which are provided free of cost to the patients. But there is a need for more medicines and other supplies to help in the continued management of these children.

We would like to say thank  you again to all our supporters  and to GlobalGiving  for their contributions. We look forward to your continued support in helping us provide the necessary care for the sick  and needy children of Shikarpur.
