NCSC MASA’ADAH TEAM conducts free medical camp at Ghungrella

The prevalence of diabetes in Pakistan is setting records on a global scale. It is an alarming situation for not diabetic people but people who are unaware of their condition. To address the situation the NUST Community Service Club (NCSC) joined hands with Saleem Akhtar Trust and set up a free medical camp. On the 13th of December a camp was set up in a village named Ghungrella which is at a forty minute drive from Islamabad. All the diabetic tests were run on the patients by Dr. Shahid Nawaz and Dr. Abrar Ahmed Bari. Out of 60 people, 13 were diagnosed of diabetes and 3 showed early signs of the disease. Free medicine was made available to all the patients. A session was conducted for the people by our team that educated them about the risks of diabetes and aspects of controlling blood pressure. Unfortunately, the citizens of these villages are unable to avail the medical facilities of our towns and cities. The facilities are also costly for them. So, they were quite grateful to our team for making this effort. It was further advised by the people to conduct medical camps regarding Hepatitis B and C as many people there are affected by it.
