HOPE (Health Oriented Preventive Education), an NGO in Pakistan that specializes in providing health and education services to the poor, has been actively involved in the Pakistan flood relief, 2011 campaign. Here is the most recent trip made to flood affected areas. A HOPE team, led by Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla, travelled to the district of Umerkot to hold a two-day medical relief camp. Similar to Badin, Mirpurkhas and Sanghar, there was a large quantity of rainwater accumulated, despite the region being primarily a desert. There was also visible damage of houses, schools and other infrastructure.
The first medical camp was held on October 4th in a village called Thar Nabisar, located near to the Tharparkar desert. A total of 550 patients were treated, majority being women and young children. The second camp was held the next day in the village of Chachhro Road. The medical camp treated around 350 patients.
