Transparent Hands recently organized a free medical camp and preventive healthcare session at Assemblies of God Church, Youhanabad, Lahore on June 22, 2022. It was held to make it possible for the underprivileged people in the area to access quality health care. Assemblies of God Church supported this free medical camp.
Free consultations and diagnostic tests
A total of 200 patients belonging to impoverished communities received free consultations, hepatitis B & C screenings, diabetes tests, blood pressure tests, and medicines. Our team also distributed free face masks and hand sanitizers.
Preventive healthcare session
Our experts held a preventive healthcare session on water pollution for the attendees at the medical camp. The session focused on water pollution and contamination, the diseases it can cause, and ways to prevent water contamination. All the main precautionary measures we can take to avoid water-borne diseases were discussed as well.
Diseases and treatments
Most of the people who visited the medical camp for consultation were suffering from allergies, cough, chest infections, weakness, diabetes, pains, high blood pressure, gastric problems, flu, and hepatitis. Free medicines were given to a large number of underprivileged patients. Only two patients were advised to undergo surgeries.
Our free medical camp and preventive healthcare session in Youhanabad, Lahore, made a significant difference in the lives of 200 deserving patients and their families. This year, we aim to hold 100 free medical camps across the country. Thousands of donors and sponsors are supporting Transparent Hands’ mission to provide quality surgical and medical care to even more impoverished, rural, and vulnerable communities of Pakistan.
Medical camp team
The medical camp team consisted of 14 members, including a supervisor, three doctors (one female and two males), a female nurse, a lab technician, two pharmacists, a patient registrar, a photographer, and four crew workers.
