Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) in  collaboration with Turkish Red Crescent, Kuwait Red Crescent and Qatar
Red Crescent distributed relief items to the flood victims in Dadu,
Sujawal and Mirpurkhas districts of Sindh province.

According to a press release issued on Tuesday, Pakistan Red Crescent
jointly with Turkish Red Crescent distributed Non-Food Items (NFIs) and
ration to flood-affected families in Sujawal.

Furthermore, PRCS in
collaboration with the Qatar Red Crescent distributed relief items,
including tents, Hygiene Kits, and blankets in Mirpurkhas.

Likewise,
Pakistan Red Crescent with the support of the Kuwait Red Crescent
distributed a package of Standard Non-Food Items Kit, including a tent,
hygiene kit, kitchen set, seven blankets, two tarpaulin sheets, four
mosquito nets, and two jerry cans to each internally displaced
flood-affected family in Dadu.

More relief items and aid supplies will
be distributed gradually over time. The flood victims applauded the
Pakistan Red Crescent and its movement partners’ efforts and expressed
hope that this will continue in their area.

Turkey and Qatar Red Crescent delegation also visited the free medical
camp set up by Pakistan Red Crescent-Sindh for the flood victims in
Sajawal, where more than 700 patients, including men, women and
children, were treated and given free medicines.

Moreover, the Kuwait
Red Crescent delegation visited the Pakistan Red Crescent’s water
purification plant in Juhi, Dadu, where flood victims get clean drinking
water.

According to Yusuf Al-Meraj, Director of Disaster Management and
Emergency Unit, Kuwait Red Crescent would soon provide food, non-food
items, and medicines to Pakistan Red Crescent for flood-affected areas
in Sindh, Balochistan, and Punjab provinces.

Sardar Shahid Ahmed Laghari, the newly appointed Chairman of Pakistan
Red Crescent Society National Headquarters, appreciated the role of the
Turkish, Qatar, and Kuwait Red Crescent Societies in mitigating the
suffering of the most vulnerable in Pakistan’s devastating floods.

“The
Pakistan Red Crescent is reaching every flood-prone area of Pakistan to
assist the flood-affected, and this will continue,” Chairman Laghari
stated.

In a statement, Chairman Pakistan Red Crescent-Sindh Samar Ali Khan
stated that PRCS-Sindh has already dispatched the thousands of relief
items including tents, mosquito nets, stoves, kitchen sets, jerry cans,
tarpaulin sheets, hurricane lamps, shelter tool kits, blankets, jackets,
water filters, shawls, buckets, hygiene kits for children and women, and
so on to Red Crescent District Branches in Thatta, Badin, Dadu,
Shikarpur, Larkana, Jacobabad, Hyderabad and Mirpurkhas.

In response to
the severe monsoon rains and flooding in various locations of Sindh, the
majority of relief materials have been distributed immediately among
flood-affected people in all eight districts.

Now, PRC-Sindh will soon set up mobile health units, install more water
purification plants and distribute cash grants for food to
flood-affected families, he added.

Chairman PRC-Sindh urged everyone to
donate medicines because thousands of people in each area are getting
sick, and without the necessary medicines, doctors cannot treat them.

If  you can’t buy the medicines due to a lack of proper information, donate
money to the Pakistan Red Crescent to purchase medicines.
