Transparent Hands arranged and managed a free Medical and surgical camp at Moza Village Oorra, Sialkot for the underprivileged and deserving community of the said locality. This camp was organized and managed by Transparent Hands in collaboration with Essar Welfare Foundation and Blood Bank. The aim of arranging this camp was to provide medical assistance to the people who cannot afford their medical check-ups and basic medical procedures. Our camp team consisted of twenty members including one supervisor, four doctors (two male and two female), one pharmacist, four lab technicians, one female nurse, two photographers, and seven crew workers.
A total of 226 patients were facilitated in the camp. All COVID SOPs were followed by the camp team. Patients and all other attendees were also asked to wear face masks, maintain social distance, and use hand sanitisers. To encourage the attendees to follow SOPs, they were provided with free face masks and hand sanitizers. A lot of locals and their families were present at the camp for their checkups. Free medicines and COVID vaccines along with the testing facilities for Hepatitis B and C, blood sugar level, Eye checkup, and blood pressure were also provided to the patients.
Most of the patients examined by the doctors had no prominent diseases and were given a general check-up. Free, appropriate medication was provided to the patients diagnosed with any health problems. Two Hepatitis cases and three surgical cases were found in this camp and have been advised for further treatment.
Local Businessmen of the area also visited the camp to appreciate the efforts of Transparent Hands towards the society. Team Transparent Hands looks forward to organizing such camps where we can be of service to the underprivileged patients in Pakistan. We also look forward to facilitating them with health-care, as we believe health-care to be a primary, and basic right of all human beings.
