In the past three years Lahore has been shuffling between the top two ranks of world’s most polluted cities. Smog epidemic has added a new chapter of ophthalmological and respiratory diseases to the citizens’ lives. Poor air quality results in numerous adverse effects on general health and wellbeing of the residents, especially affecting those living in remote areas or slums.
Exposure to bad air quality initially causes short-term illnesses such as eye, nose, and throat infections. Over time, it has the potential of leading to ophthalmological complications including acute Uveitis, numerous cardiorespiratory issues and a variety of cancers. Presently, due to COVID-19, the events have taken a grimer turn by leaving the public health sector burdened to its maximum capacity. Due to saturation of patients at public hospitals, and limited health care facilities most diseases are going unnoticed and therefore remain untreated. Few diseases mentioned above have the potential of eventually worsening over time and may even prove to be fatal.
Transparent Hands will organize a one-day medical camp at Rangeelpur, Lahore, to provide free consultation and medicines to the affectees. Patients who require undergoing surgeries will be provided free medical treatment. Team Transparent Hands is determined to bring quality healthcare facilities to the underprivileged residents of Rangeelpur, Lahore.
Donate for our medical camp in Rangeelpur, Lahore, and numerous individuals in acquiring a healthier life.
