Health camp details
2nd camp on 30th July 2017,
AMSA India in association with CRY - Child Rights and You organized its
2nd Health Camp from its Health Camp Series: 2017-2018 at Saksham Centre, Shahbad Dairy, Samaypur Badli, Delhi.

With an overwhelming response of 114 children and adolescents who turned up for the camp, it has only encouraged us to take this even higher and make it even better for the next camps to come. This was led by Dr. Shafaat Ahmad along with our executive members, and enthusiastic AMSA India and CRY volunteers.

Along with general physical examination and screening that was done; nutritional advise was also provided.  After having screened the kids, they were referred to the nearby hospital- Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital, Rohini and the nearby PUHC in Block B, Shahbad Dairy, Samaypur Badli. Records from the camp will be subject to further data analysis to find problems prevalent amongst various age groups of children and adolescents.

CRY Volunteers will follow up with these kids and their referral so as to ensure that they thoroughly benefit from such camps and that our work is brought to fruition.

1st camp
The CRY volunteer intervention area in Dwarka, Delhi held its first Medical Camp with the help of volunteers from Asian Medical Students Association (AMSA India). The camp resulted in a full check-up of 81 children as well as spreading awareness about diseases. This has been a great accomplishment for us and we’d like to thank our sponsor Fresca-Juices, and our passionate volunteers.

First camp in our health camp series this year was led by Dr. Ashna Grover assisted by our executive members and volunteers.

Over 100 children attended the camp and were provided free consultation. Apart from thorough general physical examination, every child was screened for nutritional deficiencies, refractive errors and dental caries.

The highlight of the camp was Dengue prevention drive run by our volunteers. The children were made aware of methods of prevention from dengue and pamplets were distributed amongst the parents and children for the same.

Stay tuned for our next camp at Saksham.
