Transparent Hands recently held a free medical camp and preventive healthcare session to make quality healthcare available to impoverished patients. The free medical camp was held at Daud Bandagi Hospital in Shergarh, Okara, on August 7, 2023.
Free Consultations, Medicines, and Diagnostic Tests
A total of 340 deserving patients received free consultations with expert doctors. Alongside this, free medicines and various health screenings were provided, including tests for diabetes, uric acid, hepatitis B and C, ultrasound scans, cholesterol levels, and blood pressure checkups. A total of 130 lab tests were conducted during this medical camp.
Diseases and Treatments
Most of the patients who sought consultation suffered from fever, flu, cough, skin allergies, eye infections, nausea, muscular pain, body/joint pain, knee pain, asthma, diabetes, hypertension, gastric problems, diarrhea, backache, and abdominal pain. No surgical case was registered.
Preventive Healthcare Session
During the free medical camp, one of our expert doctors conducted a preventive healthcare session for the attendees. This session was centered around educating attendees about the prevention and management of malaria.
In an effort to address the healthcare needs of underserved communities in Pakistan, Transparent Hands arranged a free medical camp that had a profound and lasting effect on 340 deserving patients and their families in Okara. These individuals, who had previously lacked access to adequate medical care, were provided with essential health services and support throughout the camp. The dedicated medical team worked tirelessly, offering individualized diagnoses, treatments, and screenings to identify and address potential health concerns. This initiative has greatly improved healthcare accessibility and continues to bring about positive transformation in the healthcare sector. Our mission to provide quality healthcare to impoverished, remote, and rural areas of the country is being supported by a multitude of donors. These generous individuals are contributing financial gifts to ensure that more communities in need have access to the healthcare they deserve.
Medical Camp Team
The medical camp team consisted of 15 members, including one supervisor, three doctors (two males and one female), one lab technician, two pharmacists, two patient registrars/crew members, five staff nurses, and one photographer.
