10-APR-2016: Pranayak, an educational and social welfare society started by the students of Aligarh Muslim University organized health awareness and check up camp in a remote area of Aligarh and distributed free medicines.
Pranayak carried out a detailed survey of health conditions in Raza Nagar
colony near Kwarsi Bypass and found a large population in this area needed urgent medical attention and awareness. Believing that 'detecting a disease early is half curing the patient', Pranayak organized the camp in which eight doctors of J.N. Medical College provided medical consultation to poor patients and distributing free medicines to them.
Nishit Sharma, Secretary, Pranayak thanked Dr. Prabhanshu, Dr. Ajay, Dr. Rohit, Dr. Ayush Bhargava, Dr. Prashant and Dr. Gavendra Rana for making the free medical camp a success.
He said that the weaker section of society is deprived of proper medical facilities and they are also unaware of many government sponsored. He said that the camp was organized at a newly opened Hajra Hospital. Around 120 patients, including children, were provided consultancy.
The doctors observed that the large number of patients suffered from malnutrition and gastro-intestinal diseases. Patients in these lower income group areas also comprised a large number of pediatric patients making this a cause of general concern. Aflah-ul-Haque, President, Pranayak said that "we have decided to organize more camps in different areas of the city to ameliorate the general health condition in the city".
