Transparent Hands plans to organize a free medical camp at Kasial village, Tehsil Suhawa, District Jhelum, for the underprivileged community in the area. In this one-day medical camp, our team of expert physicians will provide the following health facilities to the 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
Kasial village lies in Tehsil Sohawa, District Jhelum. Tehsil Headquarters Hospital Sohawa has been developed by the Government of Pakistan for the people of Sohawa and surrounding rural areas. This hospital only provides basic health facilities and can accomodate a small number of patients. Due to limited facilities, saturation of patients at public hospitals, and provision of limited health care facilities, most diseases go unnoticed and therefore remain untreated. 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 too. Presently, COVID-19 has added another dimension to the pre-existing challenges. The public health sector remains burdened to its maximum capacity, 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 Kasial village, Tehsil Suhawa, District Jhelum, 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 Kasial village, Tehsil Suhawa, District Jhelum. We are also looking forward to your earnest help.
Donate for our upcoming medical camp at Kasial village, Tehsil Suhawa, District Jhelum, and help hundreds of individuals in acquiring a healthier life.
Transparent Hands held a free medical camp in Village Kasial, Tehsil Suhawa, District Jhelum on June 19, 2022. It was held with the vision to bring free quality health care to the most impoverished and vulnerable residents of the area.
Free Consultations and Diagnostic Tests
A total of 139 patients belonging to vulnerable and underprivileged communities received free consultations, diabetes tests, Hepatitis B & C tests, and blood pressure tests. We also distributed free face masks and hand sanitizers.
Preventive Healthcare Session
Our expert doctors held a preventive healthcare session on water pollution for all attendees at the medical camp. The session covered ways to prevent water pollution, how diseases spread due to water pollution, and what precautionary measures we need to take to avoid water-borne diseases.
Diseases and Treatments
Most of the patients who sought consultation were suffering from allergies, cough, weakness, fever, diabetes, pains, high blood pressure, gastric problems, and flu. Free medicines were given to a large number of deserving patients. Only four patients were advised to undergo surgeries.
Our free medical camp in Jhelum made a difference in the lives of 139 patients and their families. This year, Transparent Hands aims to arrange 100 free medical camps across Pakistan. Thousands of donors and sponsors are supporting Transparent Hands’ mission to bring quality health care to even more underprivileged, rural, and remote areas of the country.
