On the 6th of February 2014, our Home Based Project’s Tent School team took Senapur’s tent school children and their parents to the Nada Guddeangadi Primary Health Center in Kundapura for a health check-up. Two volunteers, Ms. Bona and Ms. Gabriella, joined a tent school teacher, Mrs. Geetha, and a coordinator, Ms. Manjula, to assist the children and their parents. Seven children and two parents received check-ups, tests, preventative injections, medicine and helpful advice from Dr. Chikmary.
Tent school children often do not have access to nutritional food, and face malnutrition, anemia etc. In order to eradicate this problem, our Tent School team provide them with fruits, nuts, jaggery, green grams and built a bio-intensive garden so that they can grow and consume nutritional fruits and vegetables and enhance their nutritional health management.
