Upcoming Medical Camp, Baldia Town, Karachi
Transparent Hands plans to organize a free medical camp in Baldia Town, Karachi. In this one-day medical camp, our team of expert physicians will provide the following health facilities to deserving patients:
- Free consultation and provision of medicines
- Free treatment of medical and surgical cases
- Free Hepatitis B and C screening
- Free BSR and Blood Pressure tests
Baldia Town lies in the western part of Karachi city with a population of more than eight hundred and thirty thousand individuals as per the 2017 Census of Pakistan. Sadly the region remains largely neglected in terms of health care facilities. Due to the provision of limited health care facilities, most diseases are reported to go unnoticed and therefore remain untreated. Moreover, the poor living conditions result in adverse effects on the general health and wellbeing of the residents, causing short-term illnesses such as eye, nose, and throat infections, Hepatitis, Diabetes, Hypertension, and various stomach issues. Over time, the mentioned illnesses are liable to become acute. Presently, the public health sector remains burdened to its maximum capacity due to COVID-19, making access to basic health care a great difficulty.
Transparent Hands intends to organize a one-day medical camp at Lyari, to provide free consultation and medicines to deserving patients. Critical cases including patients who require undergoing medical procedures and surgeries will be registered with Transparent Hands for free treatment. Team Transparent Hands is adamant about bringing quality healthcare facilities to the residents of Baldia Town.
Donate for our upcoming medical camp at Lyari, and help hundreds of individuals in acquiring a healthier life.
Transparent Hands recently held another free medical camp with the vision to provide quality health care to deserving patients. The medical camp was organized at Muhammadi Masjid, Lasi Para, Street 3, Baldia Town, Hub River Road, Karachi, on February 19, 2022.
Free consultations and diagnostic tests
A total of 412 deserving patients received free consultations. Medicines as well as blood sugar and blood pressure tests were also provided free of charge. Some of these patients were registered by Transparent Hands for further surgical or medical treatments.
Medical camp team
The medical camp was organized and managed by Transparent Hands. The medical camp team consisted of 24 members, including a supervisor, four doctors (two males and two females), two nurses (one female and two males), four pharmacists, four patient registrars, a photographer, and eight crew workers.
An awareness session about hygiene and cleanliness was also held for the patients and attendees. All COVID SOPs such as wearing face masks, hand sanitization, and social distancing were followed at the medical camp. In addition, the patients received face masks and hand sanitizers free of charge.
Diseases and treatments
Most of the patients who sought consultation were suffering from flu, cough, fever, diabetes, pains, hypertension, gastric problems, and allergies. Free medicines were given to a large number of deserving patients. Only four patients were advised to undergo surgeries. Transparent Hands has registered their cases and they will be treated at a panel hospital in Karachi.
The free medical camp made a difference in the lives of more than 400 patients and their families. In 2022, Transparent Hands aims to arrange 100 free medical camps across Pakistan. Thousands of donors are supporting Transparent Hands’ mission to bring quality health care to even more underprivileged and remote areas of Pakistan.
