“HEALTHY CHILDREN MAKES HEALTHY NATION”




“HEALTHY CHILDREN MAKES HEALTHY NATION”
“Community Health Camp launched in Ghaziabad”

Gurgaon, 4th December 2013


On Saturday 30th November, the Gurgaon based NGO "HEEALS" conducted a free health check-up program in the District Combined Hospital, Ghaziabad. The event was organised to provide access to free health care for school children, orphans and street children, who otherwise do not have the means to acces health care. Following this pilot event, HEEALS intends to extend the health-check ups further afield, to other areas of Uttar Pradesh, and Delhi NCR.
In a joint collaboration with District Combined Hospital, Sanjay Nagar, twenty students from Kaushambi school, Ghaziabad, were brought to the hospital for access to free health check-ups. A team of doctors in the hospital volunteered their time in conducting check-ups for the children. These were conducted by Dr Sandeep Pawar (Chief Medical Officer), Dr Rajesh Kumar (Dental  Surgeon), Dr Mahesh Kumar Tomar (Patheologist), Dr Anita Singh (Eye surgeon) and Dr D.K. Jain (Paediatrician).

In addition to free medical check-ups, HEEALS provided students with sanitation kits, distributed by Dr Sandeep Pawar (CMO Sanjay Nagar Hospital), which included mosquito repellent coils, water purification tablets, sanitary pads for girls and posters promoting hand wash hygiene.

Among the HEEALS team were two volunteers from the UK: Chris Mammone, professional photographer, and Sylvie Hughes. Both have been working on delivering WASH awareness campaigns and presentations on hand washing hygiene and water sanitation, in schools and orphanages around India.
After the success of their pilot event, HEEALS will be planning future health-check ups for children in economically disadvantaged sections of society, and those who live in rural areas. The organization is welcoming any members of these communities who wish to provide free check-ups to children, and are accepting requests from schools, orphanages and villages in need.

"Many children are dropping out of school and becoming sick just because of unhygienic toilets and lack of healthcare, If we provide good healthcare and WASH facilities, this will raise the standard of education of children. In the past we had one Einstein. If we provide good healthcare and WASH facilities, we can provide opportunities for many Einstein’s of the future!" said HEEALS Managing Director-Gaurav Kashyap.


HEEALS (Health, Education, Environment And Livelihood Society) is working on its Free Health Camp pilot project in rural and urban slum areas of Uttar Pradesh, to provide access to free health check-ups in schools and orphanages, as well as providing free water purification tablets, water filtration systems and mosquito nets to families. Through providing health care education and awareness to those in need, HEEALS is working to reduce the number of disease related deaths and school dropout rates.
