Challenges

The people of Kasur living near the River Sutlej are facing various health issues and problems. The rising river water due to floods exacerbates these concerns. The floodwaters contaminate the local water supply, leading to waterborne diseases such as diarrheal infections, cholera, and typhoid fever. The stagnant water resulted in the breeding of mosquitoes, increasing the risk of mosquito-borne diseases like malaria and dengue fever. Additionally, floods can cause injuries, skin infections, and respiratory problems due to exposure to dirty water, debris, and mold. Our free medical camp would be immensely beneficial in this critical situation.
