Support the rebuild of 3 rural clinics damaged by the floods that provide free healthcare for nearly 0.5 million people in Pakistan.Donate Now >
Now, after the devastating floods that swept the country over the last few months, 1,543 health clinics have been partially or fully destroyed resulting in millions of people without adequate access to healthcare. Right now, communities need support to rebuild their lives and futures, as well as urgent medical care for post-flood diseases and mental trauma. Support us today so that together we can rebuild the futures of those most vulnerable in Pakistan.
As part of Doctors Worldwide’s strategic and sustainable post-flood relief response activities, we are:
3 rural health centres (serving a combined population of 450,000) will be rehabilitated over the next 6 months with new medical equipment and medication, as well as fully staffed with trained doctors, nurses, midwives and lab techs.
(2) Upgrading existing primary care services
e.g. maternal, neonatal health and nutrition.
(4) Supplying the necessary medical equipment and medicine for communities in need.
in response to the rise of water borne diseases, Malaria and malnutrition.
(6) Supporting the service development of the DWW hospital in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
by ensuring all the clinics and their services can withstand future floods or bounce back quicker.
Since the floods began, we have:
We are currently providing technical guidance and input to a consortium of local Pakistani organisations who are working on immediate relief activities during the acute phase of the flood response. 90% of all first responders to an emergency are local organisations, and they do not have access to the big budgets and technical coordination mechanisms to develop their response further and ensure the localised response is resilient and sustainable for the long term.

We recently coordinated a trip to Broghil Valley as part of our current emergency response due to the lack of support the area had received so far. A stock of 400 high quality warm blankets as well as 5.5 tons of food, including flour, rice, sugar, tea and cooking oil were taken on a 20 hour journey to a number of villages in the area.

The Doctors Worldwide Hospital Canteen in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was developed as a community canteen as part of the DWW Hospital. The facility acts as a hub to identify patients and families suffering from malnutrition and chronic hunger. We provide meals and food packs for the most vulnerable patients, as well as widows, children and families living in dire poverty who are unable to access adequate nutrition and experience health issues as a result.More about this project >Provide food packs and hot meals to families in need this winter >
Built during the aftermath of the catastrophic Pakistan earthquake of 2005, we have been investing in long term healthcare strengthening and development in KPK, building a state of the art, earthquake-resistant, 50-bed community hospital between Mansehra and Kashmir, where currently no healthcare facility is available. Due to its services and location, the hospital is able to serve the poorest populations of Mansehra, Naran, Kagan, Balakot, Batgram and Muzaffarabad, in Pakistan.More about this project >Provide food packs and hot meals to families in need this winter >
