* UNICEF: Providing vaccinations, safe water following the Balochistan flood
* 26 Jul 2007


In a time of emergency, children in Pakistan face another deadly threat. In June, Cyclone Yemyin brought sweeping floods that affected two-point-five million people and killed over 300. In the wake of this disaster, UNICEF is undertaking a vaccination campaign to prevent measles from taking more innocent lives. UNICEF, the World Health Organisation, and other partners are supporting the government in a measles campaign in the hardest hit areas of southern Pakistan.
SOT: Dr. Amjad, UNICEF Health Officer on the measles campaign: “UNICEF has planned to vaccinate the children from the nine-months of the age up to the 15 years of the children. So we have planned to vaccinate about 124,000 children in the flood-affected districts, and instead of taking all the districts, we have chosen only seven districts which are badly affected by the floods.”
Torrential rains caught the village of Khurmastan in Balochistan province by surprise.
SOT: Mrs. Hano, 30-year-old mother of six: “It was around 9 pm. We had just had dinner and children were already in bed. Then the village elders came shouting: “Water is coming! Wake up!” We only had time to think of two things: grab our children and the Holy Quran. I am sure it saved us. In a single night, we lost everything.”
Throughout the region, UNICEF and other organizations are helping flood-affected children and their families rebuild their lives. Currently, water is being provided to 125,000 people in the stricken southern provinces.
SOT: Baby Sajida, 7 years old and studying about water and sanitation: “Before the floods we had to go very far to fetch water. Now water is just on our doorstep.”
SOT: Mr. Ghulam Ali Baloch, Balochistan Rural Support Programme: “When we reached the village for the first time after the floods, villagers told us that all water and sanitation facilities had been destroyed. UNICEF provided us with water tanks, latrines, as well as water purification tablets.”
The worst-hit areas are among Pakistan’s most disadvantaged. Many water distribution systems have been totally or partially destroyed, leading to unsanitary conditions that are causing waterborne diseases, dehydration and infection... and many hospitals and clinics are closed. Help has arrived, but much more humanitarian aid is desperately needed.
