A health camp "Mother and Child Care" was organized in association with Fortis Hospital as part of their CSR activities at Colony no. 5 on 21st Dec 2011. The camp was attended by more than 100 beneficiaries of our Rotary Roshni Centre (a centre for adult literacy classes for women).
Before the check up, Dietician Nivedita Singh, educated mothers about the common health problems such as anemia, constipation and protein and calcium deficiency prevalent in economically backward classes. Oral examination, eye check up, BP and ENT examination were conducted. After the check up, calcium and folic acid tablets were also distributed to the mothers and refreshments to the children. The Fortis members who participated were: Dr. Monica, Dr. Sunil Kochar, Sister Deepika and Sister Pavittar. President Neena Singh motivated the women to give priority to their own health as well as the health of their children. The camp was very well organised by Surinder Kaur the teacher of our Roshni Adult Female Literacy Center.
