Dharavhi gets relief in the form of Smile on Wheels
Dharavhi houses thousands of people most of who have migrated from their native places in search of work. People in this area are extremely vulnerable to diseases like malaria, dengue etc because of the lack of proper sanitation facilities. Smile on Wheels launched in Dharavi is a boon to the people living there. Many women who attended were anemic. Supplements like iron and calcium tablets were distributed. Many were found to be suffering from preventable maladies like malaria, TB, skin diseases, open cuts, untreated wounds, asthma, joint pain, etc. Besides these, health counselling was done to generate awareness on health-seeking behaviour among the families.
