Medical officers have said that the food being provided is adequate. But they complained about the lack of medical assistance that they say is proving to be a major threat for flood victims. Flood victims have appealed to Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif for immediate assistance.
Flood victims in relief camps in the Sher Shah area have yet to receive medical assistance due to which one child died on Tuesday.
Flood victims in relief camps across Sher Shah are completely without any medical assistance and victims have been suffering from numerous diseases due to the lack of facilities.
Flood victim, Javed’s daughter Rabia died in the relief camp after medicine was not provided to her on time. His second daughter, Shazia, is in a critical condition and is suffering from gastroenteritis. “My daughter died because no one was there to give her any medicine. There is no medicine at the camp,” Javed said.
