Healthcare Project, Union Council Agra, District Charsadda, Pakistan
The devastating flood during the monsoon season of 2010 created havoc over a wide area across Pakistan. Although the flood affected the lives of thousands of families and individuals in each province of the country, due to Charsadda District’s close proximity to the Kabul and Indus Rivers, the long term damage has been more severe in this area.The destruction of most of the health facilities and the already weak economic condition of the region has made the inhabitants even more vulnerable to health problems.
According to the UNOCHA (Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs) report of 2012, Union Council Agra has been identified as one of the most flood-devastated areas within Charsadda District which still stands in need of aid in all areas of development, including health. Therefore, RMF has joined hands with Pakistan Health Foundation (PHF) UK and signed an MOU to provide comprehensive primary healthcare to the people of Union Council Agra. Pakistan Health Foundation UK (PHF) is a non-profit organization founded in 2011 by a group of membes from the Reading Rotary Club UK and its mandate is to work exclusively on health issues for the poor and vulnerable people of Pakistan.
