November 04, 2017 - 

The 5th morbidity report covers a three-month period: April 1st to June 30th, 2017. Although the larger Swat Earthquake Relief Project came to an official close in the first week of March 2017, the community requested that RMF continue our healthcare services.

Serving Multiple Communities in the District: September 2016 – December 2016

March 14, 2017 - 

The health clinic has been operational for a little over a year: December 16th, 2015 to December 31st, 2016. It has been located in 4 different villages, all within the same district of Swat. The changes of location mean that we have been serving different communities, but since all come from the same cultural, socioeconomic, and geographical background, the morbidity patterns and statistics have remained quite consistent, with the expected seasonal variations.

Over the course of this year, we have provided a total of 8,525 patients with primary health care and maternal and child health care. The...

Phase II Housing Reconstruction Begins: June 2016 - September 2016

October 13, 2016 - 

On October 26, 2015, a magnitude 7.7 earthquake hit the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan. Due to the depth of the earthquake, the damage caused by its otherwise powerful tremors was controlled. However, the main quake was followed by 87 aftershocks, which along with the winter rains and snowfall, triggered a series of landslides in these mountainous regions, causing weakly structured houses built on hill slopes to collapse. According to NDMA reports, more than 100,000 houses were destroyed, rendering nearly 600,000 people homeless or living in makeshift shelters.

After completing Phase I of our relief plan (objectives I-III:...
