Transparent Hands, in collaboration with NGO World, 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 ZEST Model High School, Sector 50-C, District Korangi, Karachi, Sindh, on July 21st, 2023.
Free Consultations, Medicines, and Diagnostic Tests
A total of 493 deserving patients received free consultations from qualified doctors during the free medical camp. The patients also received free medicines in addition to consultations. They underwent crucial examinations and screenings for conditions like diabetes, malaria, hepatitis B and C, and uric acid, as well as tests for blood pressure and cholesterol. The patients received all of these services free of charge, ensuring their access to essential medical care and basic facilities.
Diseases and Treatments
Most of the patients who sought consultation suffered from fever, flu, cough, skin infections, eye/ear infections, nausea, body or joint pain, knee pain, asthma, diabetes, hypertension, gastric problems, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and malnutrition. A total of 89 lab tests were also conducted during the medical camp.
Preventive Healthcare Session
The session on malaria proved to be highly informative and enriching for all attendees, as they received valuable knowledge from an expert doctor. Through this expert guidance, they gained a deeper understanding of the disease, its prevention, and treatment methods, empowering them to make more informed decisions and contribute effectively to the fight against malaria.
Transparent Hands organized a free medical camp that left a profound impact on 493 deserving patients and their families. These individuals, who were deprived of adequate medical care, received vital health services and support during the camp. The committed medical team worked tirelessly, delivering personalized diagnoses, treatments, and screenings to identify potential health risks. This free medical camp has significantly enhanced healthcare accessibility and continues to bring positive change to underserved communities in Pakistan.
