The underprivileged have been facing an increasing number of problems, especially during the pandemic. To help them, charitable organizations have become flagbearers for several noble causes. They have been taking steps to end hunger, bring quality health care to the underprivileged, and provide education to out-of-school children. Transparent Hands and LaunchGood are two such organizations. Here’s everything you need to know about them.
Transparent Hands is a Lahore-based NGO but we are also registered in the UK and USA. The organization was founded in 2014 to provide quality health care, including surgeries and medical procedures, to patients that cannot afford it. We have provided treatments to thousands of patients at quality hospitals. we also hold free medical camps in remote and underprivileged areas of Pakistan.
Amidst the pandemic, Transparent Hands also launched a special campaign to provide personal protective equipment to medical staff.
The organization offers many types of surgical and medical treatments, including Cochlear Implant surgeries. The implant is a small electronic device that stimulates the cochlear nerve (hearing nerve) electrically to restore the sense of hearing. It is quite an expensive procedure and Transparent Hands is one of the few organizations that provide it free of cost to deserving patients.
Hundreds of patients have received these implants and had their sense of hearing restored. Most of these patients are children below the age of 5. There are many more hearing-impaired who need donations to undergo Cochlear implant surgeries. You can read their stories here. We also make it easy to find all the patients who are eligible for Zakat.
Besides these, many individuals that are sole breadwinners of the families and haven’t been able to work due to diseases and disabilities are also listed. By donating to help us provide them with life-saving surgeries or artificial limbs, you make a difference in the lives of these patients as well as their families. Donors can read patient stories to make an informed decision. Once the patients have been treated, their success stories are published on the website as well.
Transparent Hands also accepts Zakat to support this noble cause. You can easily calculate Zakat with our online Zakat calculator. You can give Zakat from the comfort of your home.
To ensure transparency in their operations, the organization does not accept cash. You can donate via online bank transfers, PayPal, cheques, and debit and credit cards.
