Transparent Hands arranged and managed a free medical and surgical camp at Bahadur School System, Chungi Amar Sadhu, Lahore, for the underprivileged community of the said locality. The aim of arranging this camp was to provide medical assistance to the students, their families, and the residents who cannot afford their medical check-ups. Duniya International News (USA) reporter Syeda Raza also visited the camp for documenting the efforts and services provided by the Transparent Hands team. Mr. Raheel Abbas Director of Operations Transparent Hands was also present at the medical camp. Our camp team consisted of fifteen members including one supervisor, four doctors (two male and two female), one pharmacist, two lab technicians, one female nurse, one photographer, and five crew workers.
In total, 430 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 sanitizers. There were a number of students and their families including other residents present at the camp for their check-ups. Free medicines along with the testing facilities for Dengue, Hepatitis B and C, blood sugar level, 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 patients diagnosed with any health problems. One surgical patient, three Hepatitis cases, and 10 patients tested positive for Dengue in this camp and have been advised for further treatment.
Transparent Hands appreciates the Duniya International News (USA) reporter Syeda Raza for visiting the camp. 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.
