Transparent Hands plans to organize a free medical camp at Charsadda, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. In this one-day medical camp, our team of expert physicians will provide the following health facilities to deserving patients:
- Free consultation and provision of medicines
- Free treatment of medical and surgical cases
- Free Hepatitis B and C screening
- Free BSR and Blood Pressure tests
Charsadda lies in the Northern region of Pakistan and has a large population. The city hosts ruins of the ancient Gandharan civilization. The bazaars, culture, heritage, and local food speak of the traditional region. Sadly the region remains largely neglected in terms of health care facilities. The pandemic has added another dimension to the pre-existing economic, social, and medical health care challenges of the region. Under normal circumstances due to the provision of limited health care facilities, most diseases usually go unnoticed and therefore remain untreated. Presently, a saturation of patients at public hospitals is further leaving non-COVID patients devoid of basic health care facilities. It is common knowledge that poor living standards result in adverse effects on the general health and wellbeing of the residents, causing short-term illnesses such as eye, nose, and throat infections, Hepatitis, Diabetes, and Hypertension. Over time, the mentioned illnesses have the potential of becoming acute. Presently, though the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government has distributed Health cards to its citizens, the public health sector remains burdened to its maximum capacity due to COVID-19, making access to basic health care a great difficulty.
Transparent Hands intends to gauge the possibility of providing basic health care that is the foremost right of every individual. We look forward to organizing a one-day medical camp at Charsadda Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, to provide free consultation and medicines to deserving patients. Our health practitioners will also educate the residents about hygiene and the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle. The camp will further educate the residents about the necessary steps required in acquiring preventive measures against certain diseases. Critical cases including patients who require undergoing surgeries will be registered with Transparent Hands for free treatment. Team Transparent Hands is determined in bringing quality healthcare facilities to the residents of Charsadda. We are also looking forward to your earnest help.
Donate for our upcoming medical camp at Charsadda, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and help hundreds of individuals in acquiring a healthier life.
Transparent Hands organized a free Medical and Surgical camp on August 28, 2021, at Hujra Haji Fazal Shakoor Khan, Charsadda, for the underprivileged community of the said locality. The camp team consisted of seventeen members including two supervisors, six doctors (three male and three female), two pharmacists, two lab technologists, one female nurse, one photographer, and three crew workers. At this camp a total 342 patients were checked free of cost. Testing facilities for Hepatitis B and C, blood sugar level, and blood pressure were also provided to these patients. All COVID SOPs were followed by the camp team. The patients and all other attendees were encouraged to wear face masks and use hand sanitizers. An awareness session on COVID-19 was also held after which the patients were administered COVID vaccinations. Moreover, an ambulance facility was also provided for the emergency cases.
The majority of the cases examined by the doctors consisted of patients suffering from stomach issues, joints and muscular pains, various types of allergies, diabetes, and fever. Free medication has been provided to such patients. In the medical camp, only one medical case was found and registered with us for treatment.
The medical and surgical camp organized by Transparent Hands has played an instrumental role in assisting more than 300 underprivileged men, women, and children who turned up at the camp. Team Transparent Hands thanks all the donors for their assistance. In the future, we look forward to organizing more camps in order to be of service to the underprivileged patients in Pakistan. Our goal is to facilitate the neglected community of our country with basic healthcare.
