August 2010 – A report


Comments   |   Reports


The highlight of this month has been REFERRALS. The health team believes that it is pointless to do only a screening of children and diagnoze problems. A health camp can be considered complete only after the required treatment has been provided. Therefore, though it has been a tiring and time consuming process, we have taken children for treatment whereever the school & parents have given us their consent.

Given below is a summary of all our activities in the month of August 2010.


In August 2010:

Total number of camps – 6
