Queuing Up In Advance

Nagardhan health camp

Nagardhan health camp 

The Nagardhan Medical Camp organised by us was a huge success. People had already arrived at the spot waiting patiently on their haunches since 1’0 clock in the afternoon. When our team arrived to set up the logistical arrangements at the venue we were pleasantly surprised to find a motley crew already assembled.

Without much ado the practiced team pitched up a mock hospital set up with ease of habit. We have done such health camps  earlier at Tamaswadi, Parseoni, Parsodi Peth, kerdi, bakhari, ambazari, Kolitmara, sihora, Kachurwahi, Parsodi, Pardi, Nagpur. So setting up the works was no hassle and soon the registrations counters were busy.

HERD Foundation began operations for this free camp in no time. Many people from adjoining villages of the Taluka had also come for the camp. The visitors included plentiful women as is common in our camps.  Also children and the elderly were brought in by family members to get them all checked and given free medicines for their different conditions.

The health camp started at 4:00 pm to continue well over 09: 00 pm at night providing free medical checkups to nearly 2400 registered people. An important feature of the camp was that besides active medical treatment it emphasised on the importance of proper hygiene and prevention measures especially in the ongoing monsoon season.

Eight medical departments of NKP Salve Institute of Medical Sciences and Lata Mangeshkar Hospital with a team of doctors, interns, nurses and attendants provided support to examine and treat the people. The medical and paramedical team of Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Pediatrics, Orthopedics, Ophthalmology, Surgery, Dental and ENT Departments attended to patients who were mobilized from the localized villages around Nagardhan.

The camp was privileged by the presence of HERD Foundation founder Dr. Amol Deshmukh who along with field staff had organized the entire arrangements to make it such an overwhelming success. HERD Foundation’s chief social objective is medical relief for poor and needy. Dr. Amol Deshmukh continues to play a key role and in contributing for the medical welfare of people through provision of active medical treatment. He is a strong advocate for weaker sections to gain access to medical care, particularly those living in such remote rural areas.

Nagardhan Village Medical Health Camp

HERD Foundation is organizing a Medical Health Camp at Village Nagardhan near Ramtek for the benefit of nearly 1500 to 2000 people living in and around the village. The Camp of June 23, 2014 will be working from 4 pm to 9 pm and will offer the usual team of medical practitioners to provide healthcare services to people suffering from physical ailments in the area. The team comprising of eight departments from NKPS Institute Medical Sciences will allow the rural populace to avail of all kinds of healthcare investigations, prescriptions and follow up through referrals.   

An important feature of our healthcare initiatives is that we organize these health camps especially in remote rural settings for people who do not have access to medical services. This is part of HERD Foundation’s commitment towards a healthy rural citizenry. We had recently organized one such camp at village Kachurvahi that had drawn a huge footfall in the region. This clearly showed us that the need for such health camps is genuinely required.

HERD Foundation is adept at setting the stage for delivery of health care in rural areas. We derive the complete cooperation of the villagers who duly assist us as best as they can in making the arrangements for such camps. On our part we provide a comprehensive health package to impart health education and sensitize communities on various preventive and promotive health care issues. These include quick tips on nutrition and hygiene.

Our medical camps witness the participation of huge numbers of people including women, children and the elderly. Besides seasonal ailments we cater to the conditions of chronic patients and other debilitating diseases. Specialists in the team integrate referrals as part of our healthcare programme. Regular health camps focus on eye care, dental care, worm infestation, skin infections and physiotherapy as well. HERD Foundation camps aim to create awareness, diagnosis and treatment of health conditions.
