Transparent Hands and Rafhan Maize Products joined hands to arrange a free two-day medical camp at City Foundation Public School, Khuda ki Basit, SITE Area, Kotri, Sindh. The medical camp was held on January 22 and 23, 2022 to provide quality health care to patients belonging to underprivileged communities.
Our camp team consisted of 25 members, including a supervisor, three doctors (one male and two females), a sonologist, three nurses (one female and two males), three pharmacists, four patient registrars, a photographer, and nine crew workers.
A total of 723 deserving patients received free check-ups, including ultrasound scans, as well as blood sugar and blood pressure tests, out of which 619 were women and children. Free medicines were given to the patients and some of them 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.
The team followed all COVID SOPs such as wearing face masks, hand sanitization, and social distancing. In addition, the patients were provided with face masks and hand sanitizers free of charge. An awareness session about hygiene and cleanliness was also held for the patients and attendees.
The majority of the patients who sought consultation were suffering from flu, cough, fever, headaches, diabetes, pains, hypertension, gastric problems, and allergies. Free medicines were given to a large number of deserving patients. Only five patients were advised to undergo surgery. Transparent Hands has registered their cases and they will be treated at a panel hospital in Hyderabad.
The free medical camp in Kotri made a difference in the lives of more than 720 patients and their families. This was just the first of the 100 free medical camps Transparent Hands aims to arrange in 2022. 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 Pakistan.
