The event started with an inaugural ceremony during which our boys welcomed the guests and medical crew with thunderous blasts of the trumpets. Fr. Bellamkonda Sudhakar, Director of the institute expressed his heartfelt appreciations to the members of the Manav- Mitra and Lions Club for taking initiative to come over and organize a fee medical camp in our camp. He also explained to them how Don Bosco fathers and brothers have been rendering their services for the welfare of the children who need care and protection in Twin Cities.
As it is said health is wealth, but now a day’s thinking of going to hospital itself makes us sick. In other words it is very expensive. It is not only a routine check up but they promised us that they will find some donor for those boys and girls who require spectacles and will have follow up camp after eight months.
Mr. Ramakrishana Raj, member of the Lions club said that he is overwhelmed and feeling at home to see the so many children at Don Bosco Navajeevan . He also said that it is not a Orphanage but it’s a ANANDA NILAYAM because all the children are found with lot of happiness on their faces and he expressed his kudos for the staff of Don Bosco, Navajeevan, who have been selflessly working for the welfare of the children.
It was a well organized camp for which the medical crew rendered service so happily. There were different stall for the checkups like, Measurement of pulse, blood pressure, Height & Weight, Blood sugar monitoring to screen diabetes, tooth check up and Eye check up. Children and also provide with basic medicine for the various tests and also they are given drinks and fruits energizing themselves.
