Emergency Relief to Communities affected by the flood through Medical and Veterinary Camps

Medical Camps

Duration:  Sept.2010- Oct.2010

Estimated cost: Rs. 16.10 Million

The floods caused a wide range of epidemics, which affected a large number of people. Due to the destruction, people had very limited access to health facilities, and therefore were more vulnerable to diseases. PRSP, being one of the major active organizations in the Punjab, was quick to assess the situation and start providing the affected population with essential medical services. USAID-Pakistan provided funds through RSPN in order to provide medical services in the flood affected districts of Dera Ghazi Khan, Muzaffargarh, Rajanpur, Layyah, Rahimyar Khan and Mianwali. 78 medical relief teams were formed, who in turn set up 814 medical camps. A total of 159,620patients were treated through these medical camps.

In addition to this PPAF provided PRSP with funds to arrange 105 medical camps, where 46,263 patients were treated

Veterinary Camps

Duration:  Sept.2010- Nov.2010

Estimated cost: Rs. 10.50 Million

A great deal of the livestock population was adversely affected as a result of the floods. Due to   the stagnant water, the livestock were subject to a number of diseases due to which many of them died. 4,357,328 animals out of 10,708,224 (41%) were adversely affected during the floods in Muzaffargarh, Dera Ghazi Khan, Rajanpur and Layyah districts. It was therefore essential for PRSP to safeguard one of the most important sources of income of the population.

A total of 307,116 animals were treated, either through vaccinations, de-worming medication or feed supplements by establishing veterinary camps through USAID financial assistance.
