Transparent Hands, in partnership with Rafhan Maize Products, recently arranged a free two-day medical camp to provide quality health care to deserving patients. The medical camp was held at Bukhari Public High School, Khursheed Colony No.2, Babbar Stop, SITE Area, Kotri, Sindh, on March 19 and 20, 2022.
Free consultations and diagnostic tests
A total of 826 patients belonging to underprivileged communities received free consultations, out of which 728 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 21 members, including a supervisor, three doctors (one male and two females), a sonologist, two nurses, two pharmacists, four patient registrars, a photographer, and seven 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 allergies, cough, fever, diabetes, pains, hypertension, gastric problems, and flu. Free medicines were given to a large number of deserving patients. Only four 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 in Kotri made a difference in the lives of over 820 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 Pakistan.
