Commitment to Action

Medical Relief Camps

Commitment by

Krishnagopal Maheshwari Foundation

In 2008, the Krishnagopal Maheshwari Foundation (KGMF) committed to improving overall health standards by organizing a series of one-day medical camps that will bring healthcare to remote villages in India. Rural dwellers, due to inadequacy of medical care and inaccessibility to clinics, remain unaware of their health issues. As a result, many treatable diseases go unattended. KGMF, with its aim of improving the overall standard of health and villagers' awareness of diseases, conducted a medical relief camp in February 2009 at NASHIK (Maharashtra). Additionally, by April 2009, through the medical relief camps, doctors had treated 1,017 patients and prescribed free medications.
