District Hazara lies in the Northern region of Pakistan. It is naturally bestowed with scenic topography and used to be a hub of tourist activities before the COVID-19 global pandemic. The pandemic has added another dimension to the pre-existing economic, social, and medical health care challenges of the region. Under normal circumstances due to the provision of limited health care facilities, most diseases usually go unnoticed and therefore remain untreated. Presently, a 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 a rural setting. It is common knowledge that poor living standards 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, 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 Hazara Division, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, to provide free consultation and medicines to 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 the 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 the Hazara Division. We are also looking forward to your earnest help.
Donate for our upcoming medical camp at Hazara Division, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and help hundreds of individuals in acquiring a healthier life.
