Emergency Relief for the victims of Shakardara Flood in Afghanistan

The heavy rain that started in early August of 2013 caused flood in Shakardara District in Kabul, Afghanistan. It resulted in killing 21 people and affected many residents in the area. Houses and bridges were damaged.

After an assessment of the damage in Shakardara District, AMDA Afghanistan and Afghan Japan Clinic, just 15 kilometers away from the affected community, decided to dispatch a medical team for the victims of this flood. The medical team consisted of two medical doctors, one nurse, one pharmacist, and one registrar.

The people affected in the community totaled 30,000, the number of fully-destroyed houses were 18, and the number of partially-damaged houses 214. During the medical mission from August 22nd till 25th, the team treated 329 patients in the community of 80,000 people, of which 198 patients were female and 131 patients male.

The major symptoms seen among the patients were acute respiratory infections, diarrhea, dysentery, urinary-tract infection, and eye diseases. The people who received the medical treatments were very appreciative of the much needed support. The reconstruction of the area was started by the government, and humanitarian and medical aids have been extended by NGOs.

September 3rd was the last day of AMDA/AJC mobile health clinic in the community, and this completes the mission for the victims of the flood in Shakardara.
