For every 1,000 children born, 45 to 50 do not survive or 90 to 100 die within their first five years of birth due to malnourishment in expecting women coupled with poor post-natal care.
The Tharparkar district in the Sindh province of Pakistan has once again been facing a drought-like situation and the severe lack of food, water, and medical facilities has been taking people’s lives unnecessarily. Sadly, children and women affected are among the most vulnerable. Our disaster and emergency relief packages are designed to help those most in need.
For every 1,000 children born, approximately 45-50 do not survive and up to 90-100 die within their first five years of birth due to malnourishment in expecting women coupled with poor post-natal care.
Malnourishment or medical problems associated with it is sure to increase the number of deaths over the coming days. The people of Tharparkar are fighting for their lives and we must act now to save them. The most vulnerable people, including the sick, elderly, children, and nursing women, face greater health dangers while they wait for basic assistance.
