Health Check-up Camp at Yedthadhi

Health Check-up Camp at Yedthadhi

What is a Health Check-up Camp? In a Health Check-up Camp the community members have their basic health checked, i.e., BP, weight and height and they are asked about their regular health challenges.

Last week, FSL-India’s Centre for Experiential Living conducted one of these camps at our Yedthadhi migrant community, to check the inhabitants’ health and, if required, to provide them the right medicine. 32 people in total, i.e. 22 adults and 10 children, were checked and received treatment – mostly fever, cold, and skin problems were diagnosed.

Firstly, a Spanish school class conducted a session on health and hygiene. They were informed about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet, like eating more variety of vegetables, etc., to emotional and community health. FSL-India organised this camp to raise the awareness of the community regarding the importance of a check-up, especially for the children, all of whom suffer from worms in the stomach.

Afterwards, Dr. Mamatha, the local doctor in Yedthadhi, checked all the tent community members free of charge.

FSL-India is really grateful to ‘Recogida de fondos por India’ (fundraising conducted in Spain) who sponsored all the medicines required for the community.
