Responding to the Floods in Pakistan

Resource Finder

Google's Crisis Response team have released a web page in Urdu and English where you can find information, resources and donation opportunities to help the victims of the Pakistan floods.

Part of the response includes a Resource Finder a tool to help disseminate updated information about health facilities and services in Pakistan. The Resource Finder (again in Urdu or English) is a Google Map that shows the locations of hospitals and clinics. Users can select the type of clinic they wish to view from a drop down menu.

The map includes editable records to help relief workers maintain up-to-date information on the services, doctors, equipment and beds available at neighboring health facilities.

A similar Response Finder is also available for Haiti.
