Real Medicine Foundation - Initiative "2010 Pakistan Emergency Flood Relief"

Status: Completed


During the last week of July, 2010 floods in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (formerly Northwest Frontier Province) claimed the lives of over 2,000 people and have affected over 3 million people, leaving hundreds of thousands displaced and homeless. Due to inaccessibility to large number of flood-hit areas the exact picture of real disaster has been hard to ascertain in the first days of emergency relief.

Based on the success of our 2009 Flood Relief Medical Camps in Pakistan and the recent needs assessment visits, Real Medicine Foundation (RMF) and Relief Foundation (RF) are proposing to conduct 10 free medical camps in the tent camps of Charsadda district to address the emergency and primary health needs of flood affected populations, treating at least 20,000-25,000 people.
