The Young Doctors Flood Relief Mission is working in Mirpurkhas. The Team is staying at home of a gentleman, called, Mian Amjad who is on his own expenses supporting 1600 flood effectees, and  he happens to b the VP PML-N in this region.

So far YDA team has treated more then 7500 patients in periphery of Mirpurkhas in about 30 different villages n camps...conditions r worst...the team risked there lives at least 3 times while conducting the rescue missions as once they stuck in flood near sanghar secondly 3days ago an ambulance of our slipped from worn out bank of a canal but miraculously came to stop n today an ambulance seating Dr Faqeer, Zeeshan Sajid overturned in a canal as the road was under water....luckily some locals were around they jumped in save the Drs n Driver n then pull out the vehicle with some added help n ropes. May Allah protect the volunteers n young lionhearted Drs...Govt of Sindh is a total failure n ignorant...May Allah keep the poor ppl safe...its Allah's blessing that surprisingly conjunctivitis n Malaria havent turned in epidemics yet n still there is no sign of cholera or a major outbreak of Gastro.
