Vadodara (Gujarat), November 2020: The Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS) Vadodara, organized Two Health Camps and Four Health Awareness session for kids from Don Bosco Snehalaya and various slums of Vadodara. 80 street boys and 131 girls benefited from these events held under the aegis of ‘Medical Care Project’ supported by MIX FOR KIDS e.v., Germany.

Fr George Miranda (Project Director) and Ms. Jagruti Patil (DBDS– Coordinator) were the resource persons. The free health camp included free health and dental check-up, pathological tests, diagnosis and medicines to the sick children. Children with weakness were given vitamin and mineral supplements. Most of the slum girls are under weight and suffer from stress in daily life.

The health awareness session focussed on educating children on COVID-19 related symptoms, precautions, promotion of positive lifestyle, daily healthy routine, personal hygiene, nutrition, diseases, sanitation, cleanliness, yoga and positive attitude etc. Each session had a question and answer session in which kids asked many questions which were answered by the resource person. The details are given in following table:
