Transparent Hands held a free medical camp in Village Kasial, Tehsil Suhawa, District Jhelum on June 19, 2022. It was held with the vision to bring free quality health care to the most impoverished and vulnerable residents of the area.
Free Consultations and Diagnostic Tests
A total of 139 patients belonging to vulnerable and underprivileged communities received free consultations, diabetes tests, Hepatitis B & C tests, and blood pressure tests. We also distributed free face masks and hand sanitizers.
Preventive Healthcare Session
Our expert doctors held a preventive healthcare session on water pollution for all attendees at the medical camp. The session covered ways to prevent water pollution, how diseases spread due to water pollution, and what precautionary measures we need to take to avoid water-borne diseases.
Diseases and Treatments
Most of the patients who sought consultation were suffering from allergies, cough, weakness, fever, diabetes, pains, high blood pressure, gastric problems, and flu. Free medicines were given to a large number of deserving patients. Only four patients were advised to undergo surgeries.
Our free medical camp in Jhelum made a difference in the lives of 139 patients and their families. This year, Transparent Hands aims to arrange 100 free medical camps across Pakistan. Thousands of donors and sponsors are supporting Transparent Hands’ mission to bring quality health care to even more underprivileged, rural, and remote areas of the country.
Medical Camp Team
The medical camp team consisted of 14 members, including a supervisor, three doctors (one female and two males), a female nurse, a lab technician, two pharmacists, a patient registrar, a photographer, and four crew workers.
