Health sector in Sindh is in a deplorable state. People living in rural and remote areas in Sindh don’t have access to adequate healthcare facilities due to which children and elders continue to perish. Due to illiteracy, the majority of people are not even aware of their health condition until their disease is progressed to advanced stages. Through this medical camp, hundreds of patients were facilitated and with the help of your donations, we can reach many more patients in Ubaro and its surrounding areas.
