MUMBAI, JAN 13, 2017: The Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS) conducted a free health camp early in January, for the women from the slums of Ghatkopar in Mumbai, where more than 550 women benefited.
The camp was inaugurated by Father Rolvin D'Mello, executive director of DBDS and the guest of honour was Misia from Foundation Asha, Switzerland.
DBDS in association with the Seven Hills Hospital conducted the camp for poor and needy women offering them a wide range of check-ups free of cost. They provided specialised screening and consultation with experts on naturopathy, eyes, gynaecological problems and cardiac problems. Many ladies were referred to the hospital for further treatment.
"We will extend all the support for Don Bosco in conducting such activities in our area," Sitaram Tiwari, corporator of the area said. The camp saw ladies visiting in huge numbers as the slums in Ghatkopar - Kurla lack proper public health services.
