Thar famine: 79 Thari children die in last 47 days

THARPARKAR: Three more children died on Sunday in drought-hit Tharparkar due to malnutrition and different diseases, pushing the death toll to 79 in last 47 days.

According to Online Indus’s correspondent, the children died at Mithi hospital, where, sadly, death of children has become a routine.

More than 450 babies have died over the past eight months in Thar, which is facing drought conditions.

Despite many promises made by the federal and provincial governments, the people of the area have got nothing and their condition has worsened with each passing day.
