Today started with a visit to a hospital in Karachi. Here we saw children from flood affected areas suffering from typhoid, malaria and dengue fever (otherwise known as bonecrusher disease). We were told the cases have just started coming in and will grow in numbers.
These kids were getting immediate treatment but as the numbers grow it will become more difficult to treat all. It was strange to think of these kids as ‘lucky’.
“A kids ward with no toys” said Ivor….”I wish we had brought some toys”
