“I am suffering from Asthma. I came to this camp and got treatment done free of cost, This camp is a blessing for poor people like me” said Leelabai Varma, a labourer, at the end of a camp on Sunday, Jan 21st. Orange City Hospital & Research Institute in association with Lokakalyan Samiti, a social service wing of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha organized free medical check up camp for the benefit of slum dwellers of Garib Nawaz Nagar, Kampttee road, Nagpur. To provide basic health care along with carrying out awareness about health among slum dwellers was the primary objective of this camp.
Sharing his experience on this occasion Dr. Deepak Dongre, SMO I/c, Community Health Division, OCHRI said, “Labourers, mostly migrants from Chhattisgarh are living in this over crowded urban slum. These slum dwellers are faced with inadequate housing, poor hygiene and lack of safe drinking water and sanitation leading to infectious disease in many. Taking health care directly to this vulnerable population fills a critical need. Many people were sick and they were in need of some medical care. But they did not have money to afford the costs of going to the hospital or buying medicines. So, this camp was a great relief for them. Our medical team saw 300 patients in a single day. Medicines were also distributed free of cost in this camp. Blood Sugar test was also done free for needy patients.”
Dr. A. K. Verma, General Physician, Dr. Deepak Dongre, Dr. Shrutika Vanjari , Dr. Monika Bopache, Family Physicians rendered their expert services. Brother Virendra Meshram and Shri. Anil Dhakate, PAE, OCHRI assisted the team of doctors in this camp.
Dr. Anup Marar, Director, OCHRI, on this occasion said that, “It was aimed to provide the underprivileged a free check-up so that the aim of a disease free healthy society is achieved. Our doctors volunteer during the weekends. We have taken something from the society and this is our way of giving something back to the society. If every doctor follows it, our society will become a better place to live in. Under Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, Orange City Hospital and Research Institute organizes various health screening camps for the benefit of economically poor section, rural population, tribal people, women, senior citizens, and children etc.”
