Free Medical Camp Organised

DSC_0192Tibet Charity joined hands with Fortis Hospital Kangra to organize free medical camp for the public in Dharamsala on 19th May 2015 at the public hall of Tibetan Settlement Office, McLeod Ganj.

Fortis Hospitals are highly acclaimed group of hospitals with branches almost in every big and small cities in India. They have opened a new branch at Kangra (17 kms from here) whose inauguration was done by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

On the 19th four specialist doctors, a gynecologist, a cardiologist, an orthopedist and a specialist on medicine attended the camp providing free medical check up to the public in and around McLeod Ganj. Though the day coincided with the beginning of holy month for the Tibetans when many attend prayer at the temple of His Holiness, many still took the opportunity to get themselves checked and seek medical advice.DSC_0218

The camp started at 10 a.m. and closed at 02 p.m. as the doctors had to attend to patients in their hospitals. Within 4 hours, more than 120 people turned up for the checkup.

The home nurses of Tibet Charity helped in translating for those who don’t speak Hindi or English.

We thank the administration and the doctors of Fortis Hospital for kindly sparing time to conduct the medical in spite of their highly busy schedule.
