Overview

Transparent Hands, with the collaboration of Inspire Pakistan, intends to help needy Afghan refugees by setting up a free medical camp and delivering a preventive healthcare session in Gadap Town, Karachi, on September 28, 2023. 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 Consultations
  • First Aid
  • Medicines 
  • Hepatitis B & C Screenings 
  • Blood Sugar Test
  • Blood Pressure Checkup
  • Uric Acid Test
  • Cholesterol Test
  • Free Registration of Deserving Cases for Surgeries and Medical Procedures

Challenges

Gadap Town, located near Agha Khan Hospital in Karachi, is a densely populated area with a significant Afghan refugee population. Overcrowding and poor sanitation facilities in the area are contributing to the spread of communicable diseases. Lack of proper hygiene practices and limited access to clean water and sanitation infrastructure increase the risk of diseases such as diarrhea, respiratory infections, and vector-borne illnesses like dengue fever and malaria.

Our Solution

This free medical camp and preventive healthcare session will help Afghan refugees residing in Karachi who are in urgent need of access to quality healthcare. We believe that it is essential for these deserving individuals to learn about the signs, symptoms, and diagnosis of a wide range of health issues through informative sessions like these. By raising awareness, we hope to empower them to adopt healthy habits and maintain their well-being throughout their lives. Our dedicated team of doctors and specialists will be available to provide free consultations, medication, and diagnostic tests during the medical camps. For those requiring surgeries or other medical treatments, Transparent Hands will register them and facilitate their referral to our panel hospitals. We are fully equipped with advanced medical resources and committed to providing comprehensive care to Afghan refugees who are unable to afford medical services. Your generous donations to this cause will greatly benefit these deserving individuals. 

Upcoming Medical Camps 


Transparent Hands recently conducted a free medical camp and preventive healthcare session at Jamia Masjid Ashrafabad, near Agha Hospital Afghan Camp, in Northern Bypass Gadap Town, Karachi on September 28, 2023. The main purpose of this free medical camp was to extend quality healthcare services to Afghan refugee patients, addressing their medical needs and promoting preventive measures for better health outcomes.

Free Consultations, Medicines, and Diagnostic Tests

A total of 551 deserving patients were provided with free medicines. A team of expert doctors also conducted diabetes tests, screenings for hepatitis B and C, as well as assessments for Malaria, Cholesterol, and blood pressure. These services were made available without any cost to the patients.

Preventive Healthcare Session

One of our expert doctors conducted a preventive healthcare session during the medical camp, emphasizing the importance of personal hygiene and offering guidance on improving it to prevent health problems. 

Diseases and Treatments

Most of the patients who sought consultation were suffering from fever, cough, flu, chest infection, toothache, earache, scabies, typhoid, hepatitis, diarrhea, diabetes, urine infection, stomach ulcers, insomnia, jaundice, and body pain. 

Impact 

The free medical camp held in Karachi had a significant impact on the lives of 551 deserving patients and their families who struggle to access medical care. The camp provided essential healthcare services, including free consultations and treatments, addressing the healthcare disparity. The camp's success was made possible by generous donors who shared a common vision of delivering quality healthcare to underprivileged communities. Their support played a vital role in positively impacting the lives of deserving patients.
