Free Medical Camp in Mardan by Transparent Hands
Transparent Hands plans to organize a free medical camp in Mardan, 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
The infamous decade-long war on terrorism left Mardan severely impacted. Presently, an economic zone planned near Rashakai under China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), is hoped to resurrect the city in near future. After 2015, Mardan also witnessed a population boom and now remains the second largest city of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province. Due to the saturation of patients at public hospitals, and the provision of limited health care facilities, most diseases go unnoticed and therefore remain untreated. 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, COVID-19 has added another dimension to the pre-existing challenges. The public health sector remains burdened to its maximum capacity, 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 Mardan, 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 Balakot. We are also looking forward to your earnest help.
Donate for our upcoming medical camp at Mardan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and help hundreds of individuals in acquiring a healthier life.
