Unlike other health projects, HeNN’s involvement was not direct in this one. It supported Nepal Junior Youth Red Cross Circle of Budhanilkantha School, which conducted the health camp at Thulakhet, a very remote village in Kaski district.
The camp, held on 27th August, 2005, provided basic health services to 500 people from different Village Development Committees. Ten doctors, including Gynecologist, Orthopedic, ENT and General Surgeon, along with the team of 15 interns and 4 nurses form Manipal Medical College, participated in the camp.
The patients from different villages as far as Sarangkot, Dhukur Pokhari, Chapacot and Bhadaure also visited the camp. The Nepal Junior Red Cross Circle distributed free medicine worth US$ 1,000.
Similarly, medicine worth US$ 934 was donated the Manipal Medical College’s Fund for the Poor, which provides free drugs to the needy.
