More that 20 million people have been directly affected by last summer's flooding in Pakistan, because of millions of acres of inundated farmland, tainted water supplies, and destroyed homes and infrastructure. Because of the low immediate death toll and the slow rise of the flood waters, however, the disaster failed to capture the world's attention the way that many other cataclysmic events--the tsunami in Southeast Asia, the earthquake in Haiti--have in the past, and so the relief efforts in the country are still drastically underfunded. Please join us next Friday as we offer our assistance.
Presented by the Feinberg School of Medicine Student Senate, in conjunction with the Center for Global Health and Northwestern and the South Asian Medical Student Association.
