Health Checkup and Immunization Camp
Thank you for your generous support to our immunization program. With your support, Seva Mandir organized free health checkups cum immunization camp in Dabban village in Udaipur district. In this village, it takes more than one hour to reach the nearest health facility by public transport, which is also not very frequent. Therefore, the people rely on home remedies, traditional healers or quacks for treatment and go for qualified care only when the condition deteriorates.
The camp was conducted by a senior Pediatrician, a General Nurse Midwife (GNM) and a senior gynecologist who also heads the health program of Seva Mandir. The camp catered to 139 children (up to 12 years) with treatment for common illnesses and 12 children (up to 1 year) received vaccine shots.
Details of the treatment given at the camp are as follows:
Type of illness and no. of Children
Upper Respiratory Infection (URI) 43
Cold/ Cough 24
Skin Infection 16
Asthenia (Weakness) 12
Pyrexia (Fever) 9
Abdomen Pai 7
Seva Mandir plans to continue to conduct free health check up and immunization camps in other remote villages of its work area. So I wanted to thank you again for your generous support to Seva Mandir. It is because of kind people like you that we are able to provide treatment to tribal children who would otherwise have no option available to get the basic health care.
We would love to hear from you. Please reach me at email@example.com
