The toll in Pakistan's devastating floods rose to 1,752 till now.

The floods for the past six weeks have washed away almost everything in its path. Mud and land slides have swept away over 7,000 miles of roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, electricity poles, and contaminated water and food supplies. Many parts of Pakistan are cut off, hampering and frustrating relief efforts. It is the worst flooding in 80 years. A region the size of England has been flooded.

"According to new estimates following the most recent flooding in Sindh... at least 10 million people are currently without shelter," said Maurizio Giuliano, spokesman in Pakistan for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

"And this does not include those who already received emergency shelter supplies and those housed in schools," Giuliano told.

MERCY Malaysia Seeks More Funding to Assist Pakistan Flood Victims

30 August 2010 - MERCY Malaysia is seeking more funding to assist Pakistan flood victims in response to the Pakistan floods that have devastated millions of lives in the past one month. MERCY Malaysia President said the money is needed to help provide emergency medical relief to flood victims in the southern parts of Pakistan that were affected by the flooding.

“We plan to go further down south to set up more mobile and static clinics since the need for medical attention is still widely needed but at the moment the funds are “trickling into” our Pakistan Relief Fund and it puts a constraint on the scale of our relief work in Pakistan” said MERCY Malaysia President, Dato’ Dr Ahmad Faizal Perdaus.

“I urge members of the public, corporations, foundations and organisations to come forward and help to alleviate the suffering of the people in Pakistan caused by the floods by providing financial assistance through our Pakistan Relief Fund,” said Dato’ Dr Ahmad Faizal.

"The MERCY Malaysia team in Pakistan is actively involved on the ground since they arrived on 4 August. To date, we have sent three teams to Pakistan and are currently working at two static clinics in the Nowshera and Charsadda districts. Each static clinic also runs a mobile clinic; we have served over 6,000 patients through our 4 clinics, and we expect the numbers will rise as more people are displaced by the flood,” said Dato’ Dr Ahmad Faizal Perdaus.

“Both our mobile and static clinics received overwhelming number of patients that seek medical attention since MERCY Malaysia gained the trust of the local communities there,” he said.

"We at the MERCY Malaysia headquarters received reports from our staff in Pakistan that there is a high number of cases relating to conjunctivitis, dehydration and diarrhoea as there is a shortage of clean and safe water to drink and use,” he added.

“Apart from providing medical relief to the affected communities, MERCY Malaysia is also distributing hygiene kits and conducting sessions for the flood survivors to educate them on cleanliness and hygiene. We assisted 200 families in Pabbi, Nowshera, and hygiene promotion sessions were done together with local students from the Peshawar Medical College. This is important to mitigate the spread of communicable diseases -like diarrhoea and scabies- that occur during floods.”

“Since the Government of Pakistan has announced that the emergency phase is until 30 September 2010, MERCY Malaysia will continue to provide emergency medical relief to as much affected communities as we can and we hope to continue provide our services in the recovery phase after the said date, if our funding permits,” said Dato’ Dr Ahmad Faizal.
