Smile on Wheels (SoW) mobile hospital reaches Bari village of Ashok Nagar district
A Smile on Wheels (SoW) mobile hospital reached out to more than 250 families in Bari village of Ashok Nagar district. Working as daily wagers and small farmers, these villagers relentlessly work to feed their families and issues relating to their health often remain neglected. Many people queued to get a checkup and were found to be suffering from preventable maladies like malaria, TB, skin diseases, open cuts, untreated wounds, asthma, joint pain etc. The camp was helpful for the families as they were provided treatment that included OPD sessions, diagnosis, distribution of medicines, and referral services. Besides these, health counseling about immunization was done to generate awareness among the families.
