A health camp was organized by our PhD students – Cristian, Preeti and Megha – together with Bangalore Baptist Hospital and Pregathi Charitable Trust at Sumanahali on 24 November, 2016.
A health camp organized by Health in Slums, Bangalore Baptist Hospital and Pragathi Charitable Trust was held in Ashrayanagar in July, 2017. During the health camp, the local community was provided with a health check (with approximately 100-150 consultations) and free medicines as needed. One member of the community – a 65 year old woman – was also operated for a cataract at Bangalore Baptist Hospital through this activity. Esther Boudewijns (Maastricht University, the Netherlands), who spent almost five months in Bangalore supporting Dr. Megha Thakur with her work on Project Exhale raised the funds necessary for the health camp.
