The Health Section of Tibet Charity observed World Diabetes Day on 16th November 2015 by organising half day camp for free testing of sugar level and blood pressure for the general public in McLeodganj. The camp was organized inside the public hall of Tibetan Welfare Office.
65 people came to get their sugar level and blood pressure tested. Out of these 65 people only lady was found to be having high sugar level and she was advised to go for further checkup at Delek Hospital. Another lady (an Indian) was diagnosed to be having high blood pressure and she was asked to go to a proper hospital for further tests.
In the morning, the health section of Tibet Charity put up various information porters to create awareness among the public regarding these two very common but life threatening diseases.
We are very grateful to Tibet Charity Denmark for kindly funding this camp. We thank Tibetan Welfare Office for allowing us to use their hall for the camp.
