Latest Progress Update from TCF

Thanks to Sarah Karim for the TCF's latest progress report update:

TCF's two-phased strategy on track; overwhelming need forces additions of Field Hospitals.

Immediate Relief: Our target was to provide basic care packages including tents, blankets and food rations to 20,000 affected people. Of this we have provided relief supplies to nearly 10,000 people and tented accommodation to 1,000 families. This program is vigorously being pursued.

Permanent Housing: Surveying the area and researching the best suited design for the construction of 5,000 seismically designed homes over the next two years, remains as per plan. Building new schools in these areas will be central to our reconstruction program.

TCF Field Hospitals: The plight of the injured being brought in impelled us to direct our attention to setting up 3 Field Hospitals at Neelam Ground - Muzaffarabad, Batal-Mansehra, High Court-Muzaffarabad. With the support of specialist doctors from Karachi major operations and procedures are being conducted. A team of doctors from UK is joining them next week.
