Transparent Hands plans to set up a free medical camp and a preventative healthcare session in Shergarh, Okara, to help the underprivileged people there. Our medical team, which includes doctors, nurses, and pharmacists, will provide a wide range of free healthcare services to deserving patients. They will be providing the following:
- Free Consultation
- Free Blood Pressure Test
- Free Diabetes Test
- Free Hep. B and C Screening
- Free Medicines
- Free Registration of Deserving Cases for Surgeries and Medical Procedures
Shergarh is one of the most historic towns in district Okara. A major barrier to timely and adequate treatment for its residents is the lack of access to healthcare facilities, including hospitals and clinics. In addition, a lack of health education and awareness campaigns contributes to a lack of knowledge of preventive measures, which promotes the spread of diseases that could be prevented. A higher prevalence of communicable diseases is also a result of the town’s inadequate access to clean water and inadequate sanitation facilities.
Moreover, financial constraints prevent many residents from seeking proper medical care. Organizing a medical camp in Sher Garh would address these challenges by providing free healthcare services, raising awareness about preventive measures, diagnosing and treating common illnesses, and ensuring access to essential medical services.
By conducting this free medical camp, we educate people about the signs, symptoms, and diagnosis of various health issues. This aims to help people develop healthy habits so they can take care of their own health.
During the medical camp, experienced doctors and specialists will be available to provide free consultations, medications, and diagnostic tests for the attendees. This comprehensive approach ensures that individuals receive the necessary medical attention and support to address their healthcare concerns. For patients requiring surgeries or medical procedures, we will facilitate their registration and referral to one of our panel hospitals.
To make this initiative a success and cater to the needs of hundreds of deserving patients, we kindly request your support through donations. Your contribution will play a crucial role in enabling us to deliver free, high-quality medical care to those who are most in need. Your generosity will directly impact the lives of individuals in Shergarh Okara and help them access the healthcare they deserve.

In an effort to address the healthcare needs of underserved communities in Pakistan, Transparent Hands arranged a free medical camp that had a profound and lasting effect on 340 deserving patients and their families in Okara. These individuals, who had previously lacked access to adequate medical care, were provided with essential health services and support throughout the camp. The dedicated medical team worked tirelessly, offering individualized diagnoses, treatments, and screenings to identify and address potential health concerns. This initiative has greatly improved healthcare accessibility and continues to bring about positive transformation in the healthcare sector. Our mission to provide quality healthcare to impoverished, remote, and rural areas of the country is being supported by a multitude of donors. These generous individuals are contributing financial gifts to ensure that more communities in need have access to the healthcare they deserve.
