The team distributed food parcels, and also set up medical relief camps. Since these areas had their access routes opened a few days ago, we were the first medical and humanitarian aid they had. The team ensured exemplary crowd control, and streamlined the medical camps in a manner that all deserving patients got the requisite help and medicines.

Access to these places was done with the help of jeeps, boats and even tractor trolleys, which ensured penetration into areas which were the worst affected. These people were in the need of urgent medical aid and food supplies, which were provided to them by team members in sweltering weather conditions and epidemic disease. Each member of the team was organized according to a particular skill set, and there were no disorder or riot situations experienced. The aid distribution went off with exemplary discipline and efficiency, and relief was provided to hundreds of deserving families.

A medical camp was set up and free medicines provided to patients. The main diseases encountered were gastric and dermatological problems. Relief to approximately three hundred deserving patients was provided.

Distribution of Food Items in Kottli Khudai- Fazil Pur

Food provisions were transported with the help of two busses to Kotla Khudai village, which had been canvassed a day earlier by members of the team as being the most affected village in the area. Access was gained with the help of tractor trollies, and a food distribution point and a medical camp were set up. In order to manage the huge crowd at the premises, entry and exit points to a contained venue were provided, so as to minimize chances of rioting and crowd control situations.
