Matyari – May 21, 2012; In line with Al-Khidmat’s program of providing healthcare to disadvantaged sections of society, which includes people in remote and underprivileged areas, Al-Khidmat Sindh organized a mobile medical camp with the collaboration of Pakistan Red Crescent Society at Ballu Kaka, a village in the suburbs of Matyari, in Sindh province. The medical team had to pass through inhospitable swampland to reach the village.
People of underdeveloped areas are generally deprived of diagnostic and treatment facilities available in large cities and, therefore, continue to suffer from various easily treatable ailments. Al-Khidmat regularly organizes mobile medical camps in remote, underdeveloped rural areas for the benefit of the local populace.
The mobile medical camp was a great success as people thronged to the camp in droves when they heard that an Al-Khidmat medical camp had been set up in the village. By the end of the day no less than 1200 men, women, and children had been checked at the camp by a team of two doctors accompanied by four paramedical staff, while one of the physicians provided socio-psychological support. Apart from free diagnosis, free medicines were also distributed among the patients.
