Transparent Hands organized a free medical camp on 28th June 2019 at Masjid Muktoob School, Mandi Ahmadabad, Karimabad Depalpur, Okara. The camp was set up with the collaboration of Ameer Begum Welfare Trust and our kind supporters.
During this one-day medical camp, 422 patients availed themselves of free medical consultation service by the team of Transparent Hands. Visitors of all age groups were provided free checkup facilities, medicines, and diagnostic services including blood, sugar, etc. Many patients were suffering from dehydration, gastroenteritis, and skin infections. Due to extremely hot weather, they also complained about fatigue and muscle pain.
In the camp, 56 patients were tested for Hepatitis B & C infection based on their symptoms. Among them, 8 cases were found HCV positive. Doctors identified 11 surgical cases and they were pre-registered with Transparent Hands for free surgical treatment related to the cardiac defect, goiter, and ear infection.
CEO Transparent Hands Ms. Rameeza Mueen visited the camp and listened to the concerns raised by the community of Okara regarding healthcare issues.
“Transparent Hands has been serving the most vulnerable people in Pakistan since 2014 and we hope that we’ll continue to help our people through the best utilization of our resources. I’d like to thank Ms. Rubina Shaheen Wattoo for providing us a venue for the medical camp and to all the volunteers who took part in this camp.” – Ms. Rameeza Mueen
She also mentioned that the organization will set up a free medical camp again to meet the basic healthcare needs of the deserving people living in Okara and surrounding areas.
