Kotri is the city and headquarters of the Kotri Taluka of Jamshoro District of Sindh province of Pakistan which is located in the southeast of the country. Kotri is located on the right bank of the Indus river and is the 29th largest city in Pakistan with a population of 259,358 as per the 2017 Census of Pakistan. Kotri is a historical region that hosts a number of universities and is also a hub for textile production and fishing. Sadly the region remains largely neglected in terms of health care facilities. The pandemic has added another dimension to the pre-existing economic, social, and medical health care challenges of the region. Under normal circumstances due to the provision of limited health care facilities, most diseases usually go unnoticed and therefore remain untreated. Presently, a saturation of patients at public hospitals is further leaving non-COVID patients devoid of basic health care facilities. It is common knowledge that poor living standards result in adverse effects on the general health and wellbeing of the residents, causing short-term illnesses such as eye, nose, and throat infections, Hepatitis, Diabetes, and Hypertension. Over time, the mentioned illnesses have the potential of becoming acute. Presently, the public health sector remains burdened to its maximum capacity due to COVID-19, making access to basic health care a great difficulty.
Transparent Hands intends to gauge the possibility of providing basic health care that is the foremost right of every individual. We look forward to organizing a 2 days medical camp at Kotri, Sindh, to provide free consultation and medicines to deserving patients. Our health practitioners will also educate the residents about hygiene and the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle. The camp will further educate the residents about the necessary steps required in acquiring preventive measures against certain diseases. Critical cases including patients who require undergoing surgeries will be registered with Transparent Hands for free treatment. Team Transparent Hands is determined in bringing quality healthcare facilities to the residents of Kotri. We are also looking forward to your earnest help.

Numerous families and children from the said locality were present at the camp for their check-ups. Free medicines along with the testing facilities for blood sugar level, and blood pressure, Ultrasound scans were provided to the patients as well. An awareness session on general and personal hygiene was also carried out.
