Dengue Fever Kill Scores in Pakistan/ Sun Requests for Donations.
An acute shortage of platelet kits at public health institutions is aggravating the plight of patients tested positive for dengue, and private facilities have started cashing in on the situation by charging exorbitant rates for the kits. PLEASE DONATE $100 for a life saving Platelet Kit.
According to medical experts, a dengue patient having platelet counts below 50,000 is declared critical and needs immediate platelets transfusion and any delay may prove fatal for the patient.
“A dengue patient or recipient requires six to seven platelet concentrates per day for at least two weeks to bring his platelet counts normal,” according to some leading medical professionals.
Our sources on the ground claimed that the situation was getting worse with the passage of time and health institutions were being forced to arrange platelets from their own resources.
Sources said that public sector institutions in Lahore were badly in need of at least 500 platelet kits on a daily basis.
“A kit worth Rs.8,000 ($100) is being sold against Rs30,000 ($400) in the black market these days,” sources claimed. It is an SOS call for to its donors by Sun Charity USA.
We invite all social, charitable and political organizations within USA to come join hands in helping the millions of flood-stricken people in Pakistan. This is a human disaster and we must rise above our social, political and ideological differences. Sun charity has done it before in by sending three plane and one ship loads from USA, one ship load from China and 10 of truck loads from India to Pakistan during 2005 earthquake. Over two thousand lives have been lost so far and counting. Let us all build a nation in turmoil.
Please come forward and bring us medicines including antidote to snake bites, blankets, culturally appropriate clothing, Halal dry food, juices, tents, baby formula, milk powder, power bars etc. please offer your services if you are a paramedic, doctor, nurse and willing to go to Pakistan for a week or two and ready to live in camp-like situation.
