Emergency Response – News & Events

Pregnant women caught in Pakistan’s floods left struggling for maternal healthcare.

Some 650,000 pregnant women in flood-hit provinces are affected by maternal malnutrition, with about 2,000 mothers giving birth in unsafe conditions daily. Unregulated use of medicines, untrained birth attendants, and lack of access to health facilities and hospitals are among the problems post-floods.

Pakistani health worker Mai Janat Buriro, 37, spends three hours daily handing out medicines to pregnant women with iron deficiency or malnutrition in the flood-affected province of Sindh. Of the 11 mothers who gave birth last month in her neighbourhood in the Allah Rakha colony, three who suffered from maternal malnutrition lost their infants.

“Most pregnant women have nothing to eat,” Buriro told This Week In Asia. “They don’t have access to milk either because animals they reared had died in the floods.”

Over the past several months, devastating floods have killed more than 1,500 people and displaced 7.6 million people.

When HDF visited our village, I started visualising myself as a social development worker. HDF supported us throughout the formation of our organisation and provided us with community & business management training to help improve grassroots level development.
