In late July 2010, Pakistan experienced a heavy monsoon season that covered approximately a fifth of the country in floodwater. Nearly 2,000 people were killed in these floods, and access to potable water was severely decreased. Diarrheal illnesses spread quickly, especially among young children.
Dr. Dolhun traveled to Pakistan with a small team of volunteers to provide DripDrop ORS to the children of Pakistan. As part of their effort, the DripDrop team educated parents in the preparation and administration of Oral Rehydration Solutions, empowering individuals, especially mothers, to treat their own children.
