ChildLife Foundation has activated a rapid-response to disaster management strategy in the flood affected areas and is providing emergency medical treatment to children of Sindh, Balochistan and federal capital, in partnership with the government.
ChildLife’s modernized pediatric Emergency Rooms (ERs) in flood-hit Larkana, Sukkur, Hyderabad, Nawabshah and Quetta are treating over 3,000 children daily, free of cost with life-saving medicines and quality care.
Dr. Ahson Rabbani, CEO of ChildLife Foundation, says, “Due to floods, an outbreak of waterborne illnesses is imminent amongst the 30 million people affected.
Children face an increased risk of disease and death if urgent and timely help is not delivered. ChildLife is working in overdrive and giving emergency treatment to flood-affected children who are arriving at our ERs with complaints of waterborne infections.
