The health camp was inaugurated by Fr. Rolvin D’Mello (Executive Director of DBDS) and the guest of honour Mrs. Misia (Foundation Asha – Switzerland). Other dignitaries present on the occasion were the MLA, the School Principal and Board of Trustees in whose school premises this camp was held. Fr Rolvin in this address thanked the dignitaries present for their support in conducting this camp. He also placed on record his special thanks to Mrs. Zarina Khan (DBDS field staff) for arranging this camp.
The health camp saw ladies visiting in huge numbers as the slums in Ghatkopar - Kurla lack proper public health services. The Health Camp provided specialised screening and consultation with experts on naturopathy, eyes, gynaecological problems and cardiac problems. Many ladies were referred to hospital for further treatment. “We will extend all the support for Don Bosco in conducting such activities in our area” said Mr Sitaram Tiwari – the Nagarsevak (Cooperator) of the area.
