Transparent Hands recently held a free medical camp at the District Bar Association, Nankana Sahib on June 10, 2022. It was organized with the vision to provide quality health care to the most deserving patients. The District Bar Association supported this medical camp.
Free consultations and diagnostic tests
A total of 144 patients belonging to vulnerable and impoverished communities received free consultations. Medicines, blood sugar tests, Hepatitis B & C tests, and blood pressure tests were also provided free of charge. We also distributed free face masks and hand sanitizers.
Diseases and treatments
Most of the patients who sought consultation were suffering from hepatitis C, allergies, cough, chest infection, fever, diabetes, pains, high blood pressure, gastric problems, and flu. Free medicines were given to a large number of deserving patients. Only one patient was advised to undergo surgery.
The free medical camp in Nankana Sahib made a difference in the lives of over 140 patients and their families. In 2022, 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 Pakistan.
