In the past three years Lahore has been shuffling between the top two ranks of world’s most polluted cities. Smog epidemic has added a new chapter of eye and respiratory diseases to the citizens’ lives. Poor air quality results in numerous adverse effects on general health and wellbeing of the residents, especially affecting those living in remote areas or slums.
Exposure to bad air quality initially causes short-term illnesses such as eye, nose, and throat infections. Over time, it has the potential of leading to complicated eye diseases including acute Uveitis, numerous cardiorespiratory issues and a variety of cancers. Presently, due to COVID-19, Dengue, and smog, the events have taken a grimer turn by leaving the public health sector burdened to its maximum capacity. Due to saturation of patients at public hospitals, and limited health care facilities, other patients are going unnoticed and therefore remain untreated. Few diseases mentioned above have the potential of eventually worsening over time and may even prove to be fatal.
Transparent Hands will organize a one-day medical camp at Government Girls High School, Green Town, Lahore, to provide free consultation and medicines to the affectees. 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. After a general eye exam, free eye glasses will be provided to the patients who require them. Patients who require undergoing surgeries will be registered with Transparent Hands and shall be provided free medical treatment at Life Hospital. Team Transparent Hands is determined to bring quality healthcare facilities to the residents of Green Town. Now, all we need is your earnest help.
Donate for our Medical Camp at Government Girls High School, Green Town, Lahore, and help numerous individuals in acquiring a healthier life.
