Hundreds benefit from Homeopathic free medical camp


Karachi—More than a dozen homeopathic doctors examined hundreds of people and provided them medicines at Dr. Muhammad Amin Khan Memorial Free Medical Camp at Pakistan Steel Mills (PSM) residential area, here on Sunday.
The camp was organised by Young Homeopathic Doctors Welfare Association Pakistan (Karachi Chapter). It was inaugurated by former federal minister Abdul Hakeem Baloch.
Prominent at the gathering were a local political leader, Muhammad Urs Khero, Dr.Shahid Babar, Dr. Muhammad Moin Khan and Dr.Javed Akhtar Bokhari. The association has been organising such free medical camps in different areas of the country for the past 27 years to provide relief, especially to the poor. The homeopathic doctors providing their free services at the camp told APP that most of the patients suffered from stomach ailments, allergies, including asthma and skin diseases, due to non-availability of clean drinking water, increasing air pollution and lack of fumigation in the city. The population of Katchi Abadis and low-income localities were more affected.
Dr. Javed Akhtar Bokhari said sub-standard water was being supplied to most areas of the city, which carried various bactarias, including H.Pylori, that causes stomach infection.
The senior politician, Abdul Hakeem Baloch, said homeopathy needed more government support at provincial and federal levels so that people could benefit from this medical science, which has proved effective and becoming popular in the world.
The homeopathic doctors demanded that a department of homeopathy should be set up at government hospitals and dispensaries for the benefit of the general public and promotion of homeopathy in the country. They informed that after acceptance of their charter of demands in 2004, government took some initiatives and provided infrastructure for homeopathic doctors at government health facilities.—APP
