Prayaas celebrated its fourth birthday this year. Besides adding to the victorious years of boosting children and paving way for them to forge ahead it has always ensured all the other aspects which count for over all growing of the children. What else matters more than the health of kids?? So a medical camp was organised on 25th october in Allahabad. The camp was organised in Kendriya vidayala,Jhalwa with the cooperation from NGO, CHESHTHA which helped us in availing all the facilities and expert doctors. The camp was organised to provide free medical services to all the children of prayaas. Dr Shashank Kharbanda examined as many as 117 children with the general check ups and the haemoglobin testing . Moreover Prayaas is also funding the medicines and other services to the children.
The camp was basically organised to fulfil the following purposes:
- To provide medical service and consultation.
- To provide quality medicines, vitamins, antibiotics, etc…;
- To increase awareness of basic hygiene and preventative
- To determine the percentage of most common health problems such as low haemoglobin and malnutrition and assess their most pressing medical needs
Whole hearted participaton was seen by the volunteers from students of IIIT A college. The cooperation of doctors , the enthusiasm of volunteers and children of prayaas eventually made the camp a huge success.
“He who has health, has hope. And he who has hope, has everything.” We look forward for medical camps like this because healthy life is a prerequisite to a happy life .
