ISLAMABAD, Sep 18 (APP): A private aesthetic clinic Sunday set up a medical camp for the Afghan refugees exposed to infectious skin diseases and provided treatment to many, including children and women.

The refugees, who were exposed to infectious diseases of the skin, have been staging a sit-in protest in the federal capital’s F-6 Sector for months in support of their demands.

Living in the camps under the open sky in Islamabad, Afghan refugees have become infected with not only skin problems but are also exposed to other diseases, including malaria, dengue fever, and diarrhea.

As a gesture of humanitarian assistance, Royal Cosmetic Surgery (RCS) came forth to help Afghan refugees suffering from skin problems. The clinic has been providing free of cost medical services for skin problems near National Press Club, Islamabad.

It is worth mentioning that the RCS is considered as one of the country’s premier aesthetic treatment clinics. It has a team of board-certified doctors and foreign surgeons possessing years of experience in their respective fields.

The RCS’s founder and Chief Executive Officer Rai Shahid Kharal said that the RCS was the only private entity in Pakistan that had taken steps towards this activism on humanitarian grounds in order to help the Afghan brothers and sisters.

“We are now setting up indoor premises for Afghan refugees in our office located in F-7 Markaz, Islamabad, which is fully equipped with all advancements for medical assistance to provide and facilitate these people who cannot afford any sort of medical services,” he said.

He further added that such kind of setups will also be established in flood-hit areas for treating the skin diseases of flood victims.

He further added, “We all have a social responsibility and obligation to help people who are living in poverty and especially those who have migrated here in Pakistan since they have no sources here”.
