Ponty Chadha Foundation Health Camp in Duriya & Kachera

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”

This quote from Jim Rohn is just a simple set of words, but carries a very complex and deep meaning. Amidst the hustle & bustle of our lives, we forget to take care of our health and body, which later harms us in different ways. The situation however is worse with the underprivileged, who have to work tirelessly for long hours to feed their families. This ultimately takes a toll on their health, and leads to diseases and complications, which if not checked in time, leads to irreparable damage.

In order to make the lives of the rurals a bit easier, The Ponty Chadha Foundation organizes health camps that provide health services for free.

In the month of June and July, we visited 2 villages; Duryai and Kachera, which are located in the Ghaziabad district of Uttar Pradesh. Soon after our arrival, the women, children and the elderly formed a line outside the clinic we had set up. A total of 242 hopeful villagers came to discuss their health issues, and each patient was screened by the specialists from Dr Ram Saran Garg Indo German Hospital.

From anemia, to maternal health, the doctors patiently listened to every health problem faced by the villagers and prescribed them with the suitable medications. Our team was swift in providing the villagers with the required medicine, and ensured that everyone was well taken care of.

People in the rural areas are often excluded from attaining health services due to various reasons, but the common one out of all is that of inadequate finances. Therefore, the Ponty Chadha Foundation has set up this mission to provide quality health services to the poor.
As an organization, our sole aim is to provide ample access to the essential medical services, which can help improve the life of those in need.

Health Camp: Mehrauli Village, Ghaziabad

Health Camp Mehrauli

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. -Mahatma Gandhi

Great pearls of wisdom by Gandhi ji inspire us all; but do we always live up to them?

Not everyone can help everyone, but everyone can help someone. With the aim to provide better health services to the underprivileged, The Ponty Chadha Foundation serves the underprivileged rural areas of Uttar Pradesh by organizing free health camps every month.

On 7th June, 2017, we organized the free health camp in Mehrauli, Ghaziabad.
From its total population of around 3600, 154 people attended the camp, which comprised of 53 minors, 30 adults and 71 women. The health camp proved to be a success and we appreciate the efforts of the specialists from Dr. Ram Saran Garg (Indo-German) Hospital, who identified gynaecological problems, skin issues, anaemia and ear-specific problems as the major health concerns in the village.

Health is a very important concern, which is majorly neglected in rural areas.
Financial or social barriers prevent people from reaching out to seek help at the right time, and the Ponty Chadha Foundation strives to break those very barriers by working to support and provide the best healthcare to the rurals.

We do our best to take our services to the masses, and our focus is to first reach the most disadvantaged sections of the society. At the health camp, we educate the rurals about maintaining sanitation, taking care of proper hygiene, cleanliness and other major issues that will help them live a healthier, happier and a more productive life.

Improving access to health services brings a range of benefits beyond good health, as it helps combat poverty and provides a better world for all.

Health Camp – Ponty Chadha Foundation

As a socially responsible organisation, with the aim to meet the needs of the backward section of the society, the Ponty Chadha Foundation, popularly known as PCF, organizes free health camps every month in the villages of Noida and Ghaziabad. These camps are dedicated towards ensuring the health of the people living there.

This month again, two health camps were organised. One in the village of WAVE City and the second one in the village named Ikla, Rajapur in the district Ghaziabad, to provide medical care to poor patients, who otherwise are not able to afford the high treatment cost. Both these camps witnessed a massive overflow of patients, with a total resulting in 158 in WAVE City and 145 in Ikla.  A separate counter for registration was installed at the entrance of the camp, where every person who wished to get treated had to get themselves registered by providing their basic information.

The occupation in both these villages were agriculture and the major health problem being faced were skin issues and a flowing ear. The patients went through a thorough examination and were provided with medicines as per their problem. All expenses incurred during the health camp were paid off by the foundation.

Two doctors were present to aid the patients, with one of them being Dr. Ram Saran Garg who is from an Indo-German Hospital. He has been helping us to treat a lot of patients for quite sometime now and together we have been able to create many success stories.

Manjir Ghosh, the head of PCF said that the basic aim to run health camps was to create awareness among the poor population who due to lack of medical care are subjected to various diseases. These camps make sure that they get proper medical treatment and are saved from life taking ailments.

Health is of utmost importance and ought to be given the very first priority, but in a country like India where almost 70% population live in the rural areas, a proper medical treatment cannot be availed easily. Hence, we at PCF are doing our bit, and we urge you too to take a step today, for there are millions out there waiting for your help.

Let’s together make the world a better place to live in!
