Free Health Camp by Real Medicine Foundation
Health Camp in Kavre
Dhulikhel, 30 June. A free health camp was conducted by Real Medicine Foundation (RMF) at Dhulikhel, Kavre. Altogether, 48 people benefitted from the camp, including female children from Help Nepal Network Children’s Home.
A medical officer, Dr. Munu Mahat, and health personnel from Paramedical Association of Nepal (PAN) conducted free health check-ups and a free medicine distribution program, and a dentist, Balaram Dhail, conducted free dental check-ups and counseling on dental hygiene. Due to the poor dental hygiene of the children from the orphanage, Mr. Balaram conducted a demonstration session for the right technique of brushing teeth and maintenance of oral hygiene for the children. Real Medicine Foundation provided toothbrushes and toothpaste for all the children from the orphanage.
The program was organized by PAN and supported by RMF. The chief guests were Dr. Arjun Prasad Sapkota, Chief Public Health Administrator of District Public Health Office Kavre, Mr. Rajdas Kafle, President of PAN-Kavre district, and Mr. Purna Bahadur Karki of Help Nepal Network. They declared that a lot of locals from the area, and especially the children from Help Nepal Network Children’s Home, took advantage of the health camp. They also expressed that they will seek such cooperation from RMF in similar humanitarian activities.
Hope for Future Collaboration
RMF Program Manager Mr. Ganesh Shrestha and Program Coordinator Ms. Pragya Gautam appreciated the success of the program and committed to assist in humanitarian events in the future. Earlier, RMF had also organized a program to distribute free wheelchairs and medical equipment to the health centers of Madan Kundari, Gothpani, Pokhari, Chauri, Kolti, Birta, Deurali, and Dhuseni Siwalaya Village Development Committees of Koshipari in Kavre District.
