Floods and After
The Floods in Sindh were nothing less than a calamity for the people of Interior Sindh and Balochistan. The areas were heavily affected with severe casualties, injuries and multiple homes were lost to the gruesome weather. To support the affected families, Hamdard Foundation Pakistan took the initiative of organizing hundreds of medical camps in collaboration with the Pakistan Association of Eastern Medicine.
Due to the floods, families and young children were left homeless, starving amidst pools of stagnant water. To help and support the affected, Hamdard Foundation Pakistan, reached out to thousands of families and individuals to facilitate with ration bags, blankets, mosquito nets, tents and medicines.
For the last few years, Southern Pakistan has been severely affected by heat waves when the temperature has risen to over 50◦C. Countless people were admitted to hospitals and a high number of deaths were recorded. At this time of despair, Hamdard Foundation Pakistan fulfilling Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said’s dream to help humanity, served Rooh Afza drink on the streets of Karachi & Lahore among the general public. Rooh Afza helped them regain the energy that had been lost due to extreme heat.
