Medical Camp for Backward Villagers

Sevalaya along with Shri Sankara academy conducted a Medical camp at Matha Kovil, Kanoor Paruthikottai, on 31st March 2021, 7kms away from Mannargudi in Thiruvarur District.
Dr S Kannan, Director, Shri Sankara Academy inaugurated the Mobile Medical van by flagging it off. This mobile Medical van with a well-equipped medical facility will treat the needy in nearly 40 villages of Thanjavur District.
A team of doctors and nurses from Sevalaya conducted health checkups for 82 villagers. This backward village does not have any medical facility and the nearest Public Health Centre is 4kms away from them. No medical camps have so far been conducted in this village.
Two emergency cases were identified at the camp. One, a severe anemia patient who needed immediate treatment, was moved to the govt hospital. Next was a patient who could not move his hand since morning and was unable to come to the camp location. The doctors visited the patient at his home and found that he had had a stroke in the morning. Immediate arrangements were made to admit him in the government hospital.

Sevalaya has been offering medical services since 2017 through a medical center at Kasuva village in Thiruvallur district and two mobile vans one each at Thiruvallur and Kanchipuram districts respectively.
The services include periodic free medical camps, distribution of free medicines, health awareness sessions, and specialized medical camps at intervals.
1,40,000 beneficiaries have benefitted so far through such services.
