The Tharparkar area in Sindh is mostly rural, underdeveloped and not readily accessible. Due to this, there is a lack of any infrastructure. Often stricken by climatic disasters such as droughts, Tharparkar is currently rife with healthcare problems. What little water is available to its residents is found in wells and is mostly unhygienic to consume. As a result, diarrhea is common in the inhabitants. Other than that, pneumonia, acute respiratory infections and malnutrition are commonly presented too. The infant mortality rate is very high in many regions of Tharparkar. Moreover, women’s health is neglected due to a lack of literacy.
Village residents in and around Islamkot in Tharparkar do not have any medical facilities, including proper dispensaries, available to them. The villagers have no resident medical experts and there are no emergency healthcare services available either. The responsibility of seeking out cure falls on the patient, who has to travel a long way to get to one of the district hospitals. These hospitals, in turn, are already overburdened by a large influx of patients from all of rural Tharparkar. As a result, the villagers do not have anywhere to take their medical problems.
Transparent Hands has taken the initiative to provide healthcare facilities in the village of Islamkot, Tharparkar by arranging a medical camp there. The goal of this camp is to try and meet some of the unmet healthcare needs of its citizens. All patients attending this camp will be given careful attention. Along with the provision of free medicines and diagnostic facilities, any cases requiring extensive treatment will be assessed and registered with the organization.
Help us bring quality healthcare services to all deserving patients in Islamkot. Please donate now to our medical camp.
