HYDERABAD –  A mosque in Hyderabad’s Old City has opened an exclusive women and child clinic in which people will be provided free medical treatment including laboratory tests irrespective of religion.

The clinic, which located on the first floor of the mosque, will also provide free mid-day meal to children below 10 years across religious lines. The clinic offers facilities like nebulisation, intravenous fluid replacement, wound dressing and free lab facilities, reported Times of India. The clinic will cater to nearly five lakh people.

The mosque-turned-clinic, which caters to the needs of people from slums around Wadi-al-Mahmood in Rajendranagar mandal, will also focus on pregnant women offering them nutritious diet and medicines for normal delivery. A Hyderabad-based NGO, Helping Hand Foundation (HHF), in collaboration with SEED, USA is running the clinic.

Women and children living in the surrounding slums including MM Pahadi, Sulaiman Nagar, Chintalmet, Bhopal Nagar, Hasan Nagar, Indira Nagar, NTR Nagar, and Bara Imam Ki Pahadi will get benefit from the services.

According to HHF managing trustee Mujtaba Hasan Askari, the clinic will be manned by an all-women team including a senior general physician and child specialist, obstetrician, gynaecologist, dental surgeon, dietician, nurses, counsellors and front desk staff.

“The clinic provides basic primary care. Free third-party lab services including TIFFA scans for pregnant women during ante natal period will be provided,” Askari was quoted by Times of India as saying.

All patients visiting the clinic will be assessed in a triage by trained counsellors, who conduct thermal screening and check oxygen saturation levels. They also enter the details in an ICMR developed risk assessment form. A dental chair has been installed to carry out dental health procedures in women and children, he added.

He also said that the clinic is fully Covid-19 compliant with special cabins for doctors protected with plastic curtains, glass mounted tables to protect front desk staff, a triage at the entry point, pedestal mounted sanitiser stands and large exhaust fans for free air flow.
