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, especially those residing in smaller villages, 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.
Since most of the rural Tharparker area is not readily accessible due to a lack of a road network, it is very difficult to provide medical assistance in areas such as Khudi. These areas are the least managed and have the most problems. The majority of the people have to drink water that is incredibly salty and contains a plethora of harmful minerals. As a result, along with gut infections, hypertension and heart diseases are also existent but go undiagnosed.
Transparent Hands has taken the initiative to provide free healthcare facilities in Khudi, Tharparkar by arranging a medical camp there. The aim of this camp is to bring quality healthcare to the village’s inhabitants. All patients attending this camp will be given careful attention by our team of specialists. Along with the provision of free medicines and diagnostic facilities, any cases requiring extensive treatment will be assessed and registered with the organization.
Let us join hands and work together to improve healthcare facilities in the underdeveloped areas of Sindh.
