Flood Relief Interventions- Give2Asia Health Camp

Project Period: 2014- 2016

The flood of September 2014 followed by heavy rainfall had resulted in stagnant water in most of the villages across the district of Srinagar, Baramulla, Budgam and Bandipora. This caused various health hazards mainly concerning water borne diseases and allied health issues. AMAN’s team extended their support to 14 far flung villages in flood affected districts of Srinagar, Budgam, Baramulla and Bandipora in the Kashmir valley. Considering that these villages had bare minimum health care facilities, the project focused on providing health care and related counselling services to community members of these villages.

14 health awareness and check-up camps were held simultaneously across villages in the four districts of J&K. Around 6062 people (1573 men; 2932 women; 1557 children) visited the centre for consultation and laboratory tests who were treated for illnesses like – skin infections, urinary tract infection, anemia, intestinal infection, cough and cold.

AMAN’s team of physician provided required counselling and briefed the visiting patient and their relatives on major health hazards as identified during the camp in these flood affected districts.
