The Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS) Mumbai, conducted a Free Health Camp in the slums of Dharavi - more than 150 women & men benefited through this camp. DBDS in association with the Seven Hills Hospital conducted it for the poor and needy people from the slums. This health camp was held under the aegis of ‘Flood Relief Project’ supported by DON BOSCO MONDO, Bonn (Germany).

Mrs. Surekha Pednekar (Coordinator - DBDS) welcomed all the General Physicians, their Para-medical staff. The health camp saw ladies visiting in huge numbers as the slums in Dharavi, lack proper public health care services. The Health Camp provided specialised screening and consultation with experts on Dental Check-up Naturopathy, Eye check-up, Cancer, Kidney, Heart (cardiac) related problems.

The camp was held in collaboration with the Seven Hills Hospital Dr. Pinky Patil, Dr. Neha Qureshi, Dr. Kwaja, Dr. Rohan Jadhav and their team examined the people during this health camp. People with defective eye-sight were given spectacles at a highly subsidized cost of Rs. 100 to 200 only.

The women were grateful to Don Bosco and Seven Hills Hospital for offering such a wide range of check-ups free of cost. The Vote of Thanks was proposed by Ms. Kavita Kamble (Staff – DBDS) who also had made all the necessary arrangements for this medical camp.
