Pindi Gheb is a town located in the Attock district of Pakistan. It is situated approximately 130 kilometers northwest of Islamabad. The health issues prevalent in this area include infectious diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, typhoid, and respiratory infections due to inadequate sanitation and limited access to clean water. Maternal and child health concerns arise from a lack of access to proper healthcare facilities and limited awareness of best practices. Through medical screenings, treatment, and medications, the camp will provide immediate relief to all these health issues.
The health camp will address the healthcare challenges faced by the underserved community in that region. Our camp aims to provide immediate medical assistance, diagnosis, and treatment to individuals who lack access to regular healthcare facilities. Alongside general medical check-ups, diagnostic tests, and immunizations, our camp will also prioritize raising awareness about preventive measures and hygiene practices. By bringing healthcare services directly to the community, our camp overcomes barriers of distance and accessibility. Patients in need of surgeries or other treatments will be registered with Transparent Hands and referred to our panel hospitals. Your charitable donation to this cause can have a significant positive impact on the lives of deserving patients in the region
