GUWAHATI- The COVID-19 pandemic has created lot of challenges for people across the world. The various stages of lockdown and quarantine have taken a toll on the basic facilities needed by common citizens.
Keeping in mind the various medical issues and health problems faced by people in remotely located villages of Assam, units of Red Horns Div, as a part of ‘Op Sadhbhavana’ conducted medical camps in the remote villages of Chirang District. The camps were held at Hadan Bazar (Panbari Area) on 5 Jan and at Pattabari (Kaila Maila) on 6 Jan respectively.
A dedicated team under a Medical Officer provided medical treatment at the camps. A dispensary was also established to provide free medicines to the patients. Apart from this, audio visual aids like movies, charts, information ¬boards were used to educate the locals on hygiene/sanitation/basic ways to healthy living and the COVID-19 protocols to be followed during the present pandemic situation.
The proactive effort of the Unit to reach out to the needy locals was well appreciated by the villagers, especially by those belonging to the lowest section of the society and those from far flung/remote areas.
