Medical Camps & Seminars
Special medical camps for women are held in nearly all our centers. The greatest results can be seen in remote villages where women are total strangers to diseases like AIDS. Professional doctors, gynecologists and medical personnel conduct these camps that include general health check ups and care, gynecological, AIDS, cancer detection camps and ENT. Camps are also organized to help mothers with growing children. Polio vaccine camps and cholera vaccine camps are annually organized. These have been extremely beneficial for both urban and rural people. Similar camps are also held in foreign centers.
