Challenges in Shorkot:
Shorkot is a small town in the Jhang district in Punjab, Pakistan. People living on the rural side of Shorkot are facing various health challenges due to the quality of care which is provided, affordability issues, and accessibility to clinics and hospitals. There are a few hospitals in Jhang but unfortunately, they are out of reach of the rural population due to increased costs. As a result, people of Shorkot face a number of serious health issues including infectious diseases such as malaria and diarrhea. These diseases often spread quickly among the community of Shorkot due to a lack of basic health facilities and awareness. Villagers are not even able to fulfill their basic necessities including food and clothing. Traveling to other cities for timely treatment is a huge barrier for many poor villagers due to expenses.
Transparent Hands believes in providing healthcare without discrimination to those who cannot afford it. In the past, the organization has organized 2 medical camps in Jhang in which more than 800 patients received free healthcare. This time again, we intend to reach out to hundreds of patients of Shorkot and provide them basic healthcare facilities for free.
Help us in reaching out to the people of Shorkot and provide them with timely treatment. Donate for this medical camp and be a part of our life-saving mission!
How Free Medical Camp in Shorkot City was conducted by Transparent Hands
Transparent Hands team organized a free medical camp on November 14, 2020, at Mian Safdar Hussain’s farmhouse, Al-Hussain Nagar, Shorkot city, Jhang for the people living in that area who cannot afford basic healthcare facilities. The camp was organized by Transparent Hands with the collaboration of CopperGAT Cables. A team of thirteen experts arranged and managed the entire camp. It included one supervisor, four doctors (three male and one female), one pharmacist, one staff nurse, one lab technologist, two patient registrars, one photographer, and two crew workers.
A total of 380 patients were provided medical consultation and medication, free of cost. The tests, that were conducted, included Hepatitis B & C screening, ultrasound, blood sugar, and blood pressure test. In this medical camp, eight patients were identified who needed surgical intervention and seven patients required various medical procedures for their treatment. Whereas, seven patients tested positive for Hepatitis. All these cases were registered by our team for future follow up treatment.
