Qasim Burfat, Jhimpir, is a village in Thatta district, Sindh, Pakistan. It is situated 114 kilometers away from Karachi. The area is plagued by brackish water, harsh living conditions, and a lack of adequate transportation. This combination of factors results in a multitude of health concerns for the local community. Maternal and newborn health is particularly alarming, with the area having one of the worst records in the region. The presence of plagued and salty drinking water not only increases blood pressure but also contributes to the enlargement of the heart and the development of gastric ulcers.
Moreover, the lack of access to clean water exacerbates the risk of dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. Furthermore, the absence of a reliable transportation system hinders their ability to seek appropriate medical care, further compromising their health outcomes.
Transparent Hands is committed to ensuring that everyone has the basic right to healthcare. Our mission is to provide much-needed assistance to the vulnerable Jhimpir community, which lacks access to resources for quality medical care. In addition to providing medical relief, our healthcare professionals will educate residents on the importance of living a healthy and hygienic life and will provide disease prevention tips.
We have a nationwide panel of hospitals, and we will refer patients if they need surgery or specialized treatment at one of those hospitals. We humbly seek your generous support in achieving this critical goal with an unwavering commitment to providing high-quality healthcare services to the residents of Jhimpir, Thatta.
