IMI is on the ground helping to save lives with your help
Understanding your risk and safeguarding your water sources is critical because flood may exacerbate the spread of water- and vector-borne diseases like typhoid fever, cholera, malaria, and yellow fever, among others. The most frequent dangers posed by flooding include tainting water sources for drinking and standing water, which can breed mosquitoes, present chemical risks, and result in accidents.
33 million people have been affected and at least 1,696 people have died as a result of floods in deprived Pakistan since mid-June. According to reports, the unprecedented floods have damaged property worth at least $30 billion. 7.9 million people were displaced by the disaster. Of them, 500,000 continue to reside in tents and other temporary structures.
Doctors in Pakistan are working to stop the spread of waterborne and other diseases that have killed close to 350 people since July in flood-affected areas. In the weeks since Pakistan’s deadly floods, the World Health Organization has warned numerous times about a “second disaster” as thousands of doctors and other medical personnel battle outbreaks of waterborne and other diseases in flood-affected areas while hospitals are overcrowded. Every day, more than 2,000 women gave birth in flood-affected areas, most of them in dangerous circumstances.
Unprecedented monsoon rains that began in Pakistan in June 2022 are still causing devastation and suffering across the country. Over a thousand people have died as a result of the floods in Pakistan since June, and thousands more have been displaced. aid has taken some time to get to the flood victims because of how severe the flooding was, and people are still struggling to survive. The elderly in particular have not been able to respond as quickly as others. In Pakistan’s most severely affected southern Sindh provinces, floodwaters have receded up to 78%, but displaced people are still staying in tents and makeshift camps. They have been experiencing an increase in gastrointestinal infections, dengue fever, and malaria.
Imamia medic International is responding with the help of our team of volunteers, doctors, and nurses, helping to deliver safe drinking water; lifesaving medical supplies; therapeutic food supplies; and hygiene kits to children and families. We are also establishing temporary medical centers and supporting the protection and psychosocial well-being of children affected by these devastating floods. But we cannot do it without your help.
Though our mission of helping flood-affected people has already proven effective, our covered region is still minimal compared to the devastation and millions who still need it. hence, we must all contribute to this mission in order to rehabilitate and help those who need it the most. Imamia medic international has always been a pillar for the people who need us. Our project such as the university medic complex or blood fusion center all over Pakistan has proven our commitment to making a mark in this world, to be able to be a giving hand.
