Multan is the 7th largest city of Pakistan with a population of almost 1.9 million. Plagued with air pollution due to extensive burning of municipal solid waste, Multan’s inhabitants experience adverse effects on their health, especially those who are living in remote areas or slums. Exposure to poor air quality can cause short-term illnesses such as eye, nose, and throat infections and over time, can lead to respiratory disease, cardiac disease, or even cancer.
People living in urban areas in Multan have access to primary healthcare in the city as it is home to some major hospitals. However, since people in nearby villages are deprived of such facilities due to a lack of resources, they are more susceptible to diseases. Moreover, Multan’s major hospitals see an influx of patients from these surrounding areas and are hence understaffed and overburdened.
Team Transparent Hands will address the basic health needs of men, women, and children living in Multan and surrounding areas. A free medical camp will be conducted there, which will help the patients to identify their health issues and register for treatment. Moreover, they will also be taught preventive measures against certain diseases along with methods to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Transparent Hands recently organized a free medical camp and preventive healthcare session in Basti Muhammad Pur Ghota Qasim Bella, Multan Cantt, on June 25, 2022. We held it to fill the gaps in Multan’s healthcare facilities by providing free treatments to the impoverished patients in the area. Alkhidmat Foundation Multan participated in the medical camp.
Free Consultations and Diagnostic Tests
A total of 602 deserving patients received free consultations, diabetes tests, Hepatitis B & C tests, eye check-ups, and blood pressure tests. We also distributed free face masks and hand sanitizers.
Preventive Healthcare Session on Eye Problems
Dr. Asfand Yar, an Eye Surgeon, held a preventive healthcare session on eye problems for all those who attended the medical camp. The session covered various precautions that can be adopted to prevent eye problems. Eye treatments were also discussed.
Diseases and Treatments
Most of the patients who sought consultation at the medical camp were suffering from eye problems, hepatitis, allergies, cough, weakness, fever, pains, gastric problems, and chest infections. Free medicines were given to a large number of deserving patients. Only five patients were advised to undergo surgeries.
Our free medical camp in Multan made a difference in the lives of 602 patients and their families. Thousands of donors and sponsors are supporting Transparent Hands in championing the cause of providing quality health care to even more impoverished, rural, and remote areas of the country.
