This past week IMANA’s Executive Director joined medical relief teams in Pakistan. The overwhelming loss because of floods is visible everywhere. But one group, often marginalized and even more so amid disaster, has been placed under great strain: mothers and their children. Hygiene products are needed, but we must do much more. The health of mothers and their children is of utmost urgency!Women who walked miles to reach the safety of a tent city are going into labor without access to medical care. Three days ago, we met baby Fatima, who was born in this way. Her home in the world is a simple bed and mosquito net shared by her entire family. Exposed to the elements, Fatima is already exhibiting signs of typhoid.The stories are as endless as the need is. Mothers in water-locked areas, with no access to the outside world, run to boats with their sick children seeking help. Their prayers each day are beseeching the kind of help only your support can provide.Donate and let's help them together: #ServePakistan #FloodRelief #PakistanFloodRelief ... See MoreSee Less
