Smile Foundation has come as a ray of hope for the ignored and destitute population by launching its Smile on Wheels Programme at Bhawani Patna in Thuamul Rampur Block of Kalahandi district of Orrisa on 1st June 2015. It has partnered with Orissa Voluntary Health Association (OVHA) for the project, which is being supported by TATA Trusts. The project will complement the existing government facilities, form linkages with community health workers and help make quality healthcare accessible to the villagers.
The mobile healthcare unit has been provided with a team of qualified and experienced doctor, nurse, community mobilizers and project coordinators, along with diagnostic and pathological kits, medicines, counselling and referral facilities.
Pathological tests were conducted ranging from diabetes, haemoglobin and others for accurate diagnosis of the diseases and better treatment of the patient.
Working as the bridge between the government and underprivileged population, Smile Foundation is referring patients for advanced treatment to the government and private hospitals.
SoW has initiated various awareness programmes performing street plays, talks for better understanding of the population etc.
