Transparent Hands, in partnership with Rafhan Maize Products, recently arranged another free two-day medical camp to provide quality medical care to deserving patients. The medical camp was held at Madrasa Darul Uloom Jamia tul Arabia, Khursheed Colony, Street 2, SITE Area, Kotri, on February 12 and 13, 2022.
Free consultations and diagnostic tests
A total of 741 deserving patients received free consultations, out of which 664 were women and children. Medicines, blood sugar tests, ultrasound scans, and blood pressure tests were also provided free of charge. Some of these patients were registered by Transparent Hands for further surgical or medical treatments. The medical camp was organized and managed by Transparent Hands, and Rafhan Maize Products joined hands with the organization under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Program.
Medical camp team
The medical camp team consisted of 23 members, including a supervisor, three doctors (one male and two females), a sonologist, three nurses (one female and two males), two pharmacists, four patient registrars, a photographer, and eight crew workers.
An awareness session about hygiene and cleanliness was also held for the patients and attendees. All COVID SOPs such as wearing face masks, hand sanitization, and social distancing were followed at the medical camp. In addition, the patients received face masks and hand sanitizers free of charge.
Diseases and treatments
Most of the patients who sought consultation were suffering from flu, cough, fever, diabetes, pains, hypertension, gastric problems, and allergies. Free medicines were given to a large number of deserving patients. Only eight patients were advised to undergo surgeries. Transparent Hands has registered their cases and they will be treated at a panel hospital in Hyderabad.
The free medical camp made a difference in the lives of more than 741 patients and their families. In 2022, Transparent Hands aims to arrange 100 free medical camps across Pakistan. Sponsors like Rafhan Maize Products and thousands of donors are supporting Transparent Hands’ mission to bring quality health care to even more underprivileged and remote areas of the country.
