Thanks to Mahaveer Jain Hospital for their co-operation and excellent work in providing quality healthcare to this many people; right from the start, our association with them has been a very fruitful and pleasant experience.

A special mention is due to long-time volunteer Ashok, who co-ordinated the camp from YFS’s end. Involving arrangements at the venue, obtaining necessary permissions from the local authorities, co-ordinating with the area’s MLA and Corporator (to whose kind support and assistance in making arrangements we are grateful), ensuring that the Doctors’ requested arrangements were in place, etc., Ashok has done a commendable job in co-ordinating the entire effort; Great going!
