Transparent Hands organized a free medical and surgical camp on 22nd August 2021, for assisting the underprivileged Christian community of the MCA Church, and the local community of El Shaddai School, Lahore. The aim of this camp was to assist the minorities of Pakistan. The camp team consisted of twelve members including one supervisor, four doctors (two male and two female), two pharmacists, one lab technologist, one female nurse, one photographer, and two crew workers. A total of 274 patients were checked free of cost. As the camp was specially organized for children, a maximum number of children and women turned up at the camp. Facilities for blood group screening, blood sugar level testing, and blood pressure monitoring were also provided to the patients. All COVID SOPs were followed by the camp team. The patients and all other attendees were encouraged to wear face masks and use hand sanitizers.
The majority of the cases examined by the doctors consisted of patients suffering from general weakness, fever, cough, various types of allergies, stomach issues, joints, and muscular pain. Free medication was provided to the patients suffering from the above-mentioned ailments. In total, four surgical cases have been registered with us for treatment.
The medical and surgical camp organized by Transparent Hands has played an instrumental role in assisting 274 patients including Christian women and children who turned up at the camp. Team Transparent Hands is grateful to all the donors for contributing to making this medical and surgical camp possible. We look forward to organizing more camps in order to be of service to the underprivileged patients in Pakistan by facilitating them with basic health care facilities.
