Transparent Hands plans to organize a free medical camp in District Nowshera, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. 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
The infamous decade long war on terrorism has left the region severly impacted. Nowshera District is bordered by Mardan District to the north. Presently, an economic zone is planned under China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) near Rashakai that borders Mardan. This economic zone is hoped to resurrect the region in near future. But presently COVID-19 has added another dimension to the pre-existing economic, social and medical health care challenges. Under normal circumstances due to provision of limited health care facilities, most diseases go unnoticed and therefore remain untreated. Presently, saturation of patients at public hospitals is further leaving non-COVID patients devoid of basic health care facilities. Moreover, more than 70 percent of the local population dwells in the rural setting. It is common knowledge that poor living standards result in adverse effects on general health and wellbeing of the residents, causing short-term illnesses such as eye, nose, and throat infections, Hepatitis, Diabetes and Hypertension. Over time, the mentioned illnesses have the potential of becoming acute. Presently, though the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government has distributed Health cards to its citizens, 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 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 District Nowshera, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, to provide free consultation and medicines to the deserving patients. Our health practitioners will also educate the residents about hygiene and the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle. The camp will further educate the residents about necessary steps required in acquiring preventive measures against certain diseases. 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 District Nowshera. We are also looking forward to your earnest help.
Donate for our upcoming medical camp at District Nowshera, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and help hundreds of individuals in acquiring a healthier life.
