KMC Attavar Holds Camp Organizers Meet, Felicitates Social Activists and Organizations

Mangaluru: Kasturba Medical College, Attavar organized a Camp Organizers meet 2019 and felicitated social activists at the Sanjeevini Hall, KMC Attavar here on July 27.

Deputy Manager Marketing, Rakesh Darshan welcomed the gathering and said, “For a healthy society we need to eliminate illness, poverty and illiteracy. We cannot go to every village but some good-hearted people have joined hands with us to reach out to every village to eliminate illness. With the support of these people, KMC hospital organized 449 camps in one year. It is now our duty to felicitate them for their yeomen service. Every year the felicitation programme for the camp organizers was held in Manipal, but this year, we had released the Arogya Cards in Mangaluru and we also got the opportunity to honour those who helped us in our mission”.

Speaking on the occasion Dr John Ramapuram Medical Superintendent -Kmc Hospital Attavar said, “I have seen many people organize the camps with enthusiasm. They reach the venue early in the morning and set up the stage. I was really surprised to see their commitment in holding such camps in their respective areas and villages.”

Dr John further said, “We normally hold camps in the hospitals but holding camps in villages is quite different. It is a godly work and I salute all those who dedicated their time in helping the people who are deprived of medical facilities. I urge all of you to continue your good work. If you need any help we are always there at your service. This humanitarian work should continue. I would also like to thank the organizing team who have recognized the work of these social activists. In DK, we don’t see much poverty but in the rural areas there are many who are the victims of poverty and such people cannot afford medical treatment. In such a situation, KMC is helping people through organizing camps in villages.”

Muralidhar Prabhu, Shya, and Violet Pereira were felicitated with Shawl and Citation for their tremendous Social service to the society. Prajna Counselling Centre was given the best camp organizer award. Camp co-ordinator of KMC Attavar Herbert Pereira was felicitated on the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion Herbert Pereira said, “Last year we organized 449 camps in various places and checked 1,22,984 patients out of which 1850 patients were given further treatment at the KMC hospital. When we organized camps we received very good support from the organizations. I would like to thank all the organizations who have joined hands with us to make our mission successful.”

Representatives from Rotary club, Lions club, Catholic Sabha, Spandana Mahila Gataka, Ayyappa Mandira Trust SDM College NSS Unit and other organizations also felicitated on the occasion.
