Relief for some flooded areas of Pakistan but work continues in the south
24 November 2010
Three months after the floods that inundated Pakistan, MSF has stopped the emergency response activites in some parts of the country, such as in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and in northern Sindh provinces, where flood-affected people have started returning to their homes. However, in southern Sindh and esasten Balochistan provinces, MSF teams continue to provide medical care, nutrition programmes, safe water and transitional shelters to the affected population. Additionally, MSF opened a new base in Gulshan-e-Iqbal Town and Gadap Town in Karachi (southern Sindh) to support 30,000 people affected by the floods who have not received any kind of assistance. Activities include mobile clinic activities, nutritrion screening, health promotion, provision of safe water, relief item packages and tents.
