REHABILITATION OF BASIC HEALTH UNIT

31 December,2012
Rahim Yar Khan
Completed

At the end of July 2010 heavy monsoon rains triggered both flash floods and riverine floods across Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, Sindh, parts of Balochistan and AJK. The floods in Pakistan have affected more than 20 million people (more than 10 per cent of the total population). Floods have destroyed or damaged 1.2 million homes. Infrastructure was completely damaged including, health centers, schools, homes, roads, bridges etc. Rahim yar Khan is also one of the most inundated areas of Pakistan which was severely affected in 2010. Rebuilding of infrastructure is in process but healing this wound was not possible for Government all alone. To complement government efforts, many organizations are working under the scope of their thematic areas. RAHMA Islamic Relief is also one of these organizations which have actively played its part to rebuild infrastructure and provides health care facilities. RAHMA shortly conducted an assessment of flood affected UC’s Liaquatpur and selected BHU Dera Faridi to rebuild its infrastructure and help Government in provision of health care facilities. Dera Faridi is the area where donors could not provide aid on a larger scale especially in health sector. During assessment, the fact was considered as a pivotal point in the selection of BHU Dera Faridi. Prior to service delivery, BHU was renovated with civil work and installment of furniture. Currently RAHMA Islamic Relief in collaboration with Government Health Department Punjab; is providing health care services, including free consultation, medication, lab tests, ECG and USG. RAHMA is also sensitizing community towards healthy activities through social mobilization by conducting health awareness sessions and home visits.

Newly started primary health project by RAHMA Islamic Relief, which will directly benefit at least 40,000 people of UC Dhanwan and the population of adjacent villages in District Kotli, AJK. Outcomes include qualified consultancy by male and female doctors, modern diagnostic equipment ultrasound, ECG, Microlab, medical store, ambulance, antenatal & post natal care, awareness raising & capacity building activities, outreach health screening & medical treatment camps, home visits by LHWs etc. The health situation in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) is not different. AJK is the Pakistan-administered part of Kashmir. According to the World Health Organization, the health conditions of AJK are very poor, owing to poor infrastructure, mountainous terrain, lack of education, scarcity of safe drinking water and being prone to natural and man-made disasters including earthquakes, landslides, floods and war.

Among the most significant problems of AJK are deforestation, soil erosion, depletion and pollution of water resources, unhygienic conditions and precarious sanitation due to scarcity of safe drinking water, lack of latrines and showers. Water-borne diseases including diarrhea, typhoid and Hepatitis are common in the areaThe project area is lacking an immediate access to primary healthcare, laboratory diagnostics and, for this reason, the proposed health intervention has focused on primary care for children, pregnant women and elderly, access to medicines, laboratory testing, safe maternity and public health outreach.

District Badin, Sindh
Completed

The Heavy moon soon rains that began in August-2011 and continued in September, caused devastation in most parts of Sindh. Monsoon triggered Flooding, affected 22 out of the 23 districts in Sindh. Small farmers were found to be the most affected people during the natural disaster. Some of development sector organizations intended to provide emergency relief and some of them worked for the development of their livelihood. To play an important role, RAHMA came on to the front with the initiative for small farmers in this critical situation. RAHMA identified 630 most vulnerable farmers who could not be benefited inevitably and distributed cottonseed and fertilizers among them. These farmers were identified on the basis of their meagre income and loss they faced during heavy rains. In this situation, it was not possible for them to get rehabilitated on their own. The intervention has produced results in coherence with the objectives to enable them stand and rebuild their lives. RAHMA at one end provided instant relief to affected people, in shape of cottonseeds and fertilizers and on the other hand, has taken off the extra financial burden.

Slum Based Model SCHOOLS (EDUCATION IN SLUMS)

1 March,2012
Rawalpindi Slum Areas
Completed

The urban slums of Pakistan are one of the most deprived and unprivileged communities. In the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, there are 32 slums. Most of these slums are inhibited by gypsy community that depends on begging as their source of income. These men, women and children can be seen all day long on busy roads and boulevards, begging for money in scorching sun or chilling winters. Although these gypsies have been living for more than 2 decades in these slums, the land is not owned by them. Hence there are no schools for them, or any hospitals. RAHMA felt the need and with the help of Individual donors, launched a project for education in slums of Rawalpindi. To start educational services, a small building, located in the slum was renovated with civil work and furniture for students. Building is donated by local community to promote education in slum to change their future life style. Classes were formally started in 2011 with the induction of 25 students in Nursery class. At the beginning, parents of these students were mobilized towards education which resulted in a positive manner and made them agreed upon to be a part of this initiative. The area located towards East of Mureer Chowk, right between the Railway Line and IESCO Hospital is inhibited by gypsies in the form of mismanaged slum. Such slums are scattered across the entire city and gypsies are living in these slums. These gypsies are second generation immigrants from areas like Multan, Khanewal, Bahawalpur, Rahim Yar Khan and other parts of southern Punjab. Most of these gypsies are involved in begging and drug dealing for their survival. Very few of them work in homes, factories and workshops for earning their livelihoods. The houses are make-shift, the sewerage lines are non-existent, and electricity is available only in some of the Jhuggies. There are approximately 120 Jhuggies in this slum and a population of around 1,200. Very few of the gypsies send their children to school for education. Majority of the children assist their parents from an early age in earning money through begging. This slum school is working towards spreading the light of knowledge and wisdom among the gypsies, who are very unprivileged and neglected part of our society.
