CHITRAL: A Pakistani doctor who works in Bahrain police as medical officer has been arranging free medicals camp for the flood affected people of Chitral for the last 15 days.
Dr Mohammad Adnan Bhutta is in Pakistan on a 45-day leave. Instead of spending vacations at his home, Dr Adnan has decided to serve the flood affected people of Chitral in this hour of need. He has been arranging free medical camps in Bamboriat and Rambor areas of Kailash arriving in Chitral on 15 August. Dr Adnan purchases all the medicines from his pocket and gives them to patients free of cost.
Dr Adnan’s passion to serve humanity acted as a motivating force to arrange free medical camps. He said he had provided treatment and medicines to about a thousand patients so far. He said other doctors should also visit this area to serve the humanity.
A woman visitor at the camp said Dr Adnan’s medical camp helped the local people to a great extent because it was difficult for them to travel to main Chitral city as most of roads and bridges had been damaged in the recent flash floods.
Dr Adnan provided treatment to Muslim and Kailash tribes alike. He saved many lives with timely arrival in Chitral. The medical camp was very beneficial, especially for women and children, she told. She further said Dr Adnan gave free of cost medicines to patients and handed over the left over medicines to medical technician of Civil Dispensary Rambor to further distribute it among the patients.
