Health Camps in Vulnerable Communities

We are initiating different programs and activities for the advancement of deprived communities. Recently, we organized one-day free child health camp from the generous support of Reach Out 2, the Netherlands. On our request, five doctors- Dr. Krishnahari Subedi- a senior pediatrician and Dr. Jit Narayan Yadav Senior Physician from Rapti Sub- Regional Hospital, General Physicians Dr. Shanta Bahadur Rokaya Magar and Dr. Saroj Darnal from Lamahi Hospital and General Physician Dr. Bharat Pokhrel from Gadawa Hospital examined the total 663 children. These doctors were accompanied by Seniors Health Assistants and Nurses who helped these doctors on examination.

The paramedical gave the medications to children as prescribed by the doctors. Most of the children got the medication for deworming (albendazole 400 mg or mebendazole 500 mg), Common Cold & Fever, Tonsil Infection, Ear Infection, Bronchiolitis, Stomach Flu (Viral Gastroenteritis).
