The Medical team arrived in Peshawar and volunteers had been assembled and would start work at day break. MDAUK Ch Riaz Ahmed purchased further Medication to treat skin problems and Gastro enteritis related illness. MDAUK assembled starter packs for individual families who had lost everything. This pack would include a basic cooker, fuel, pots and pans, plates and dishes, water and some basic food supplies.
MDAUK also looked at a more sustainable clean drinking water source. The choices were either a small filtration system or tablets to make water safe for human consumption. The choice was be dependant on what’s available and workable locally. The feedback from people on ground was that people are spending days and nights without food. The offer of vaccination on its own, to prevent diseases, was not a priority for people who were starving and suffering with diseases that need treatment then rather than preventing something which they may not live to see.
