On 2nd November 2021, Daily Jinnah Lahore, Rapid Lahore, SAMA Lahore, Jahan Pakistan Lahore and Metropolitan Lahore, Nai Baat, Aj Kaal, Daily Ausaf, published articles on Sundar Industrial Estate Medical Camp. On 29th October 2021, Transparent Hands arranged and managed a free Medical and surgical camp at Sundar Industrial Estate, Lahore, for the underprivileged community of the said locality. This camp was organized and managed by Transparent Hands and sponsored by ATLAS COPCO. The aim of arranging this camp was to provide medical assistance to the factory labourers and the people who cannot afford their medical check-ups. General Manager of ATLAS COPCO Mr. Sohail Shehzad and Mr. Ahsan Fayaz graced the camp with their presence. Our camp team consisted of fourteen members including one supervisor, four doctors (two male and two female), one pharmacist, one lab technician, one female nurse, one photographer, and four crew workers.
In total, 145 patients were facilitated in the camp. All COVID SOPs were followed by the camp team. Patients and all other attendees were also asked to wear face masks, maintain social distance, and use hand sanitisers. There were a number of factory laborers and their families present at the camp for their checkups. Free medicines and COVID vaccines along with the testing facilities for Hepatitis B and C, blood sugar level, and blood pressure were also provided to the patients.
Most of the patients examined by the doctors had no prominent diseases and were given a general check-up. Free, appropriate medication was provided to patients diagnosed with any health problems. One Hepatitis case and one patient with skin allergy was found in this camp and have been advised for further treatment.
Transparent Hands appreciates the involvement of our sponsor, ATLAS COPCO who made this camp possible. Team Transparent Hands looks forward to organizing such camps where we can be of service to the underprivileged patients in Pakistan. We also look forward to facilitating them with health-care, as we believe health-care to be a primary, and basic right of all human beings.
