DSC_6111

In early September of 2014, the four eastern rivers of Pakistan (Chenab, Ravi, Sutlej, Jhelum) overflowed and triggered flash flooding across Kashmir and Punjab. The floods claimed the lives of more than 350 people, ravaged massive swaths of cropland and damaged over 107,000 homes. The most critical needs included restoring access to food, emergency medical care, safe water and shelter.

GlobalMedic responded with local partners and deployed 1 Alaska Field Hospital that was used as a medical clinic, and distributed 720 Household Water Purification Units that provided clean water to over 5,000 people affected by the flooding.
