Save the Children's emergency health teams have been carrying pregnant women, stranded by the raging flood waters in Pakistan, to the nearest health clinics, so they can deliver their babies safely. To date, seven women in Batagram have been carried on wooden beds by workers on a two-hour journey through waist-high water so they can reach Save the Children's health clinics in the Allai valley. Save the Children has been operating six mobile health clinics in Allai since the beginning of the flood crisis. A nine-member team of Save the Children staff also walked for two days to reach another isolated area, Kalam, urgently in need of aid. They are beginning to distribute food to approximately 48,000 people in that community. "Many of the people who are in the most desperate need of medical help are in villages that have been completely cut off, with all roads and bridges washed out," said Mohammad Qazilbash, Save the Children's spokesperson in Islamabad. "Our health teams are particularly concerned for the mothers and their young children, who are so vulnerable during this type of emergency." Save the Children will also distribute medicines by boat to 200,000 people in Rajanpur this weekend, and an additional 2,000 tents to homeless families in DI Khan and the Swat Valley. Save the Children, which also responded to Tropical Storm Phet in June, the mass displacement of families in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province a year ago and the massive earthquake of 2005, has been serving the children of Pakistan and their families for three decades.
