Medical Camp in Dharni


As a part of our malnutrition treatment project in Amravati, Maharashtra, Action Against Hunger India conducted a free Medical camp for the local community of Dharni. Supported by NAOS, the medical camp served more than 1300 people from 39 villages for over 3 days. This included pregnant and new mothers, children and the general community. Driven by their passion to serve the underprivileged, Pediatricians, Gynecologists, Dermatologists and Pharmacists from India, Kuwait, Jordan and other parts of the world came together to provide crucial support the camp.


The camp was organized at Sadrabadi Primary Health Center (PHC) , Susurda Sub Health Centre (SHC) and Titamba Sub Health Centre (SHC) in partnership with the District and Block administration at Amravati and Dharni respectively. Nurses and technicians form the Government health centers came forward to provide their expertise for the 3 day camp. Children, women and men were provided basic medical checkup and specialized consultation for various ailments, both seasonal and chronic. All pregnant women and children from the surrounding villages were provided transportation to and fro form the camp. We'd like to thank the local administration of Dharni and our partner NAOS for making the camp a huge success.


The Dharni project is a three year program that aims to tackle malnutrition in children, work closely with pregnant and new mothers, improve water sanitation and hygiene practices, help families grow nutritionally diverse produce and improve the overall nutritional status of the community in Dharni, Maharashtra. The program, supported by NAOS, is being implemented in 39 villages and aims to touch the lives of over 45,000 people across 8500 households. Read more about the Dharni project here.
