MARG EXTENDS HELPING HAND TO BUTTERFLIES

A comprehensive health camp on 7th and 8th of June 2011..

was conducted by Mankind in Action for Rural Growth (MARG), in coordination with Butterflies, an NGO working for the welfare of street children in Delhi.

On 7th June, the day started with everyone meeting in front of the NiHealthCamp2zamuddin Railway Station. We were than received by representatives of Butterflies who took us to their shelter home which is near the railway station. Children from south Delhi area were brought in groups. To examine the children, physicians, dentist and optometrists (Ms. Looks Opticians, Kalkaji) were present. There was excitement on everyone’s face to be part of such a good cause. Children started coming to get their check-up done and by 4:00pm, 94 children had been examined. Although we did not cross the 3 figure mark on the first day, it was way above our expectation of 70-80 children.

On 8th of June too, the day started with everyone meeting at Old Delhi railway station. The health camp was organised at Fatehpuri Shelter Home run by Butterflies. On this day, we had optometrists from M/s. Lawrence and Mayo (Janpath). The team of doctors comprising of physicians, dentist and optometrists examined children coming from Chadni Chowk, Jamma Masjid, Hati Park and Fathepuri. By 3:00pm, 105 children had been examined.

On both the days vitamin tablets and basic medicines were distributed to the children. At the end of the two day camp a total of 199 children were examined.


Mankind in Action for Rural Growth (MARG) would like to thank Butterflies for giving us an opportunity to lend a helping hand in the two days health camp. MARG would also especially like to thank Mr. Vivek Mendonsa from M/S Lawrence and Mayo, New Delhi, Mr. Vikas Baria from Looks Optical, Kalkaji New Delhi.  Volunteers Mr. Ashish Dayal, Mr. Pravash, Mr. Vivek, Mr. Nikhil Nagpal, Mr. Shitij Gupta, Mr. Hirdesh Yadav and Mr. Md Iqbal for joining hands with MARG in Igniting Smiles.
