Korangi is one of the neighborhoods of Korangi District, Landhi Town in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. Despite being one of the earliest settled and the most densely populated part of Karachi, Korangi, sadly remains largely neglected in terms of health care facilities. People living in urban areas in Karachi have access to primary healthcare in the city as it is home to some major hospitals. However, since people in nearby slums and underprivileged areas are deprived of such facilities due to a lack of resources, they are more susceptible to diseases. Moreover, Karachi’s major hospitals see an influx of patients from these surrounding areas and are hence understaffed and overburdened.
Therefore, due to medical negligence, the underprivileged areas are constantly at a greater risk of general health-related complications like blood pressure, diabetes, and stomach issues on an escalated level.
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 one-day medical camp at, Korangi, Karachi, to provide free consultation and medicines to deserving patients. 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 Korangi, Karachi.
