With the death toll rising, outbreaks of waterborne disease — to which children are especially vulnerable — are a serious threat. UNICEF and its partners have set up 9 medical camps in Swat and are providing medicines, water treatment tablets and jerry cans. The agency is also supporting local authorities in their efforts to provide clean drinking water.
