In response to the catastrophic flood disaster that struck Pakistan in late July, AMDA dispatched its medical teams from Afghanistan, Japan, Indonesia and Bangladesh throughout September to October. According to the official statistic, up to 20 million people were affected with more than 1,900 deaths and 1.9 million destroyed buildings. Overall, 79 provinces out of 122 were afflicted along the northwest to the south of the country.


In collaboration with NRSP (National Rural Support Programme), a local humanitarian organization in Pakistan, the team from AMDA Afghanistan held mobile clinic in Azakhel camp and other areas in Nowshera near Peshawar from Sept. 6th-30th. During this period, the team saw 2,464 patients as a whole with common maladies such as diarrhea, acute respiratory infection as well as ENT, skin and ophthalmic disorders.
