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!
