KARACHI: More than 100,000 children have been treated free of cost at children’s Emergency Rooms (ERs) of government teaching hospitals in flood-hit locations. ERs have remained operational 24/7 despite torrential rains and flooding in calamity-hit districts of Sindh. 

ERs are managed by ChildLife Foundation under Sindh government’s long-standing public private partnership with organisation. More than 400 healthcare and management professionals are at helm of ERs in flood-affected areas, where timely medical care is given to children being brought in with complaints of water-borne diseases such as gastroenteritis, malaria, cholera, dengue, typhoid, pneumonia and skin infections.

Children’s ERs in flood-affected cities of Larkana, Sukkur, Nawabshah and Hyderabad are receiving double regular volume of patients daily. It is a challenging time, but government support has ensured delivery of emergency treatment to flood-affected children without a break or pause,” Dr. Ahson Rabbani CEO of ChildLife Foundation said.

Moreover, free medical camps have been organised for children in district and tehsil headquarter hospitals and rural health centres in Daur, District Shaheed Benazirabad, Tharushah, Naushahro Feroze, and Oderolal Station, District Matiari.
