PESHAWAR (PR) - A team of Customs Welfare Society doctors and paramedics, headed by Dr Asif Mehmood Jah, is providing relief goods and medical facilities to the people in the rain-affected areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, according to a press release. The team worked in the worst-hit villages such as Pakka Ghulam, Budu, Samar Bagh, Adreema and Bala. On Wednesday the team moved to Wahid Garhi, Charsadda, where 60 houses had been destroyed by the storm. The team provided medical facilities to 2,000 patients as well as ration and clothes to 200 families.

It is amongst the early teams from Punjab which reached the affected areas. In view of the danger of another spell of rains, the residents of the affected areas have been warned to take safety measures. Dr Asif Jah said in a statement that it is an irony of the fate that the poor people living in mud houses were affected.
