New Photos/Videos of CDRS AJK Health Operations

The vigorous pursuit of our Community Based Self Sustainable Healthcare Project in Chikar & Sulmia Union Councils has been slowed by our need to respond to the IDP emergency in NWFP. As soon the situation stabilizes, CDRS staff in Chikar will again direct its full energies toward the success of the Community Based Self Sustainable Healthcare Project. CDRS Health Facilities in AJK continue to run smoothly in spite of the lesser number of staff due to the Swat emergency, as remaining staff are working double shifts to meet the commnity's needs.
