DoW - Dental Checkup Camp at Harsil near Gangotri

Postby dheerajsharma14 » Sun Apr 05, 2015 1:45 pm

Last weekend gang of devils went on a trip to Harsil - Gangotri. We thought that what could be the better opportunity to encash the chance of Dr. Nariman traveling from Mumbai with us on this trip?? When the idea of organizing a Dental Check Up Camp with the support of Dr. Narmian was thrown up by Anshul (@akaushik), no one had a reason to disagree to the decision of organizing a small Dental Checkup Camp at the Harsil village and distribute some dental kits in the local Himalayan villages up there.

Finally, the date arrived and we all went in with all preparations done, thanks to all the devils who contributed in the cause by donating the medicines, required support material for organizing the dental camp and arranging the dental kits to be distributed in the local villages and at the camp. @Sany, contacted the local DMO at Harsil who provided us the list of medicines local need up there and we all who were traveling contributed to arrange those medicines as well. Special thanks to Dr. Nariman for contributing his services to the cause and help us live yet another wonderful, noble initiative in the remote village of Himalayas... About 25+ people were checked up in this small camp and next time now we understand that we need to devote the whole day for such activity and make our travel plans beyond just a 3 day trip :) :)

Here are some of the glimpses of this small initiative by Devil on Wheels :D :D

Indeed this was something that we'll all cherish for long. Special thanks to Dr. Nariman Kavina for lending his expertise.

Kudos to all the devils and Dr. Nariman (i belive that now on, he will also be an integrated part of DOW), who made this trip and dental camp a success. So its true that small initiatives can also make big differences. Looking forward to be a part of such a nobel cause next time..[emoji4]

@fernweh21,

You an volunteer at anywhere in the Himalayas. Most of the villages have a primary health centre and you can contribute your services there.
