Mumbai, 7-July-2018: The Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS), organized a free health check-up camp for the women and children residing in the slums of Ashok Nagar (Kurla). 156 children and women were examined by the doctors in this camp which was held under the aegis of ‘MGL Disha Project’ supported by Mahanagar Gas Ltd.

The objective of this health camp was to provide needed medical care to patients. Patients were screened for anaemia using a symptoms questionnaire. Dr. Dinesh Badani and Dr. Smita Trivedi along with 1 Nurse and 2 Medical Social workers examined the patients during this health camp. The doctors distributed iron, vitamin tablets and skin ointment to patients who were anaemic.

The doctors suggested that more health camps could be held in this area for patients suffering from skin infections. 8 women and teachers volunteered for this health camp and were extremely helpful as they helped in arranging facilities, visiting slums and informing people about the health camp and managing the crowd.

“We are very grateful to Mahanagar Gas and DBDS for this health camp,” said Mrs. Shama Shaikh (one of the beneficiary of the health camp). Mrs. Zarina Khan (DBDS – Staff) along with the DBDS team organized this Health camp. She also proposed the vote of thanks at the end.
