RC Mansa Royal, RID 3090, began the new year with a medical camp under Rotary’s Project Positive Health-Stop NCD. At the inauguration of the medical camp, DG Rajeev Garg propagated Rotary’s campaign — Ek chammach kum, chaar kadam aage, urging people to consume less salt, sugar and oil, and practise walking as an exercise for better health.
Around 200 people from Mansa and surrounding villages registered for the camp, said the Club President Amit Goyal. Senior medical and paramedical faculty from the Max Hospital, Bathinda, examined the patients for blood sugar, neuropathy and thyroid. The cost of the project to the club was ₹40,000 while the hospital and Medilord Pharmaceuticals took care of the medicine supplies and the medical team. Patients in need of advanced treatment were referred to the hospital.
PDG Prem Aggarwal said that the club has been conducting a series of medical and blood donation camps involving college students and youth in a big way in the last two decades.
