On the third day of flood relief activities in Dera Ismail Khan, Northwest established a health camp at the Kulachi Tehsil to help diagnose and provide aid to individuals suffering from different water-borne diseases. The flooding in the area resulted in the emergence of various water-borne diseases such as diarrhea, typhoid, hepatitis and scabies to name a few. Since no help arrived in time to provide essential treatment and provisions, a specialised team from NWGH in collaboration with Gomal University, District Administration and a dedicated team of local community workers strived to deliver quality medical services to the affected communities.
The NWGH team spent an entire day assisting and treating 830 patients including those of Psychiatry, ENT, Paediatrics, Gynaecology and General Medicine. The team members of NWGH took it upon themselves to provide patients with quality medical services, free of cost medical checkups, and packaged food, clothing and water filters to the flood affectees.
