Also screening of new 75 tribal individuals was done among which 42 were diagnosed as carriers and 15 patients were identified as sufferers.

Along with sickle cell, under-nutrition is also observed sickle cell patients particularly the small children. During this camp we distributed nutritious laddos (made from Ragi, Ghee jaggery and other ingredients etc.) to sickle cell patients.

In winter if sickle cell patients are exposed to severe cold climate the joint pains are aggravated. To prevent this we distributed Sweaters, Cloths and warm accessories to the sickle cell patients.  The nutritious ladoos and cloths were donated by individual donors for this noble cause.
