Due to the smog epidemic in Lahore, the city has become home to people suffering from respiratory problems. The poor air quality results in various adverse effects on general health and wellbeing of the residents. It especially affects the people who live in remote areas or slums. Exposure to bad air quality causes short-term illnesses such as eye, nose, and throat infections. Over time, it can lead to respiratory disease, cardiac disease, or even cancer.
Due to COVID-19, the public health sector is burdened to its maximum capacity. Due to the divided attention of public hospitals, most of these diseases go unnoticed and untreated. Eventually, these diseases worsen over time and prove to be fatal.
Transparent Hands will organize a one-day medical camp in Press Club Lahore. This camp will not only provide free consultation and medicines, but it will also teach the residents regarding preventive measures against certain diseases. Moreover, it will also provide the residents with methods to lead a healthy lifestyle. Team Transparent Hands is determined to bring quality healthcare facilities to the residents of Sahafi Colony. Now, all we need is your earnest help. Residents of Sahafi Colony need your help. Donate for our medical camp and help hundreds of individuals.
Transparent Hands team organized a free medical camp on February 28, 2021, at Lahore Press Club to facilitate the underprivileged population residing in that area that cannot afford basic healthcare facilities. Our medical team consisted of 28 experts including one supervisor, eleven doctors (three male and eight female), three pharmacists, one staff nurse, three lab technologists, three patient registrars, two photographers, and four crew workers.
The medical team was successful in the provision of expert medical consultation and medication, free of cost, to 253 patients. The tests that were conducted in the camp included Hepatitis B and C screening tests, blood sugar, and blood pressure. The majority of the cases constituted patients who were suffering from allergies. They were prescribed appropriate medicines by the doctors. President Lahore Press Club Arshad Ansari presented the shield to Raheel Abbas (Director Operations, Transparent Hands) on his efforts for poor and needy patients. We look forward to organizing many such camps to facilitate the poor and deserving patients of Pakistan.
