Hepatitis has now become the global public health issue with the number increasing alarmingly in Pakistan especially in Punjab. According to a report, around 11 million people are suffering from HCV across Pakistan and the majority is unaware of this disease. Due to poor socioeconomic state and lack of awareness in rural areas of Pakistan, hepatitis is increasing day by day and Sundar Industrial Area is no exception. Manual Laborers are among the most underprivileged individuals of the society. In their minimum wage, affording quality healthcare is out of question. Moreover, due to their exposure to chemical waste and contaminated substances, many of these residents suffer from gastric ailments, skin allergies and respiratory issues. Presently, the public health sector remains burdened to its maximum capacity due to increasing cases of COVID-19. The pre-existing challenges are making access to basic health care a great difficulty for the residents.
While prevention is the key to fight these diseases, access to better healthcare facilities is essential to save the lives of those already affected. Transparent Hands is determined to alleviate the sufferings of the factory laborers residing in the Sundar Industrial Area, Punjab by providing them free and quality healthcare services and Hepatitis screening. To ensure that the required healthcare is provided to the deserving patients, we need your support.
