Powered with a team of qualified doctor, nurse, lab technician, pharmacist, driver and a group of volunteers, the project aims to benefit over 16,000 children and their families directly every year.
The Smile on Wheels programme has so far provided free healthcare services to more than 10 lakh children and families.
