SETU organized a health camp for the marginalized and downtrodden sections of the society at Gwalior. The target population consisted of below poverty Line people, Carpet weaving artisans and the like. Basic motive behind the camp was to lend a helping hand to the less fortunate people who otherwise are not able to get even the basic medical facilities. Location for the camp was a Community Center at Gendewali Sadak, Gwalior; it was selected as majority of the target population resided there.
A well qualified team of reputed doctors; Dr. Alok Pandey (MBBS DNB), Dr. Neelam Rajput Verma (MS gynecologist & Obstetrics ), Dr. Yogendra Verma (M.D Pediatrics), Dr. Mahi Pravesh Mishra,. (M.S., stri & Prasuti Rog.) Govt. Ayurveda College, Gwalior, Dr. Tushar Ghodke (Physioyherapist), Dr. Pravesh Mishra MS (Ayurveda) were appointed for the health checkup. Similar arrangement was done in the pathology department where a team of expert pathologists and lab technicians handled the various tests like Hb, Blood Sugar and the like. All medicines prescribed were distributed free of cost. These included antibiotics, general medicines, multivitamins, contraceptives etc.
Camp registrations started early in the morning at about 8 am. Our SETU team including our staff and volunteers reached the spot by 7 in the morning. Camp was a huge success as a total of 301 families were treated in the camp, free of cost. By about 2.30 P.M. the camp was wound up but the smiles and satisfaction on the faces of people didn’t. !!!
