The mega camp organised by Mission Convergence to create awareness about the Government’s schemes at Fatehpur in South-West Delhi drew large crowds over the weekend.

Jamia Hamdard, Maulana Azad Medical College, Dr. Madan Mohan Malviya Hospital and the State Health Department provided specialists in health services such as ENT, skin, gynaecology, paediatrician and orthopaedic.

They also created awareness and provided counselling on nutrition, HIV/AIDS, dengue, malaria and other issues of sanitation and hygiene.

Delhi Legal Service Authority, Delhi Commission for Women and Delhi Dispute Resolution Society had also put up their stalls.

There was an exclusive stall for providing guidance and forms for UID/ID cards.

Officials said that over 600 people registered at the health camp and around 300 people enrolled their names for UID cards.

Speaking about the health services, Bali, a resident of Bhatti Mines who also came for health check-up, said, “I got my health check-up done. The doctor has referred me to a place where I need to go for further check-up. I hope I will get good services there too.”

Expressing happiness over the services provided at the camp, Saleba Begum suggested that such camps should be organised more often.
