AP health camp benefits flood victims

Birgunj, August 13:

A total of 550 villagers of Biruwaguthi VDC and adjoining areas benefited from a free health camp organised by Annapurna Post daily for flood victims at Nepal Rastriya primary school here today.

Yesterday, 700 patients had benefited from a similar camp organised at Rara Chaurasiya secondary school of Jhauwaguthi VDC. Medicines were distributed to the patients for free.

A team of 15 health workers

led by Dr Masuri examined the patients. “Most of the patients were found suffering from stomach and skin diseases,” Dr Mansuri said. The flood victims are suffering from stomach diseases, as the source of water is polluted by the flood.

“Those patients who are unable to afford for treatment greatly benefited from the health camp,” said Birendraraj Kandel of Nepal Red Cross, Biruwaguthi.

Another health camp will be organised at Dhobini VDC of Parsa tomorrow.
