- at 6:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This year CHIME and MIOT Hospitals conducted two camps in Ambur.
MIOT Hospitals and CHIME coordinated with Farida Shoes who have a staff base of 6500 and number of children in different age groups counted to 5558 of which 2823 were male and 2735 was female.
In the first camp held on 25th and 26th February 2012 at Ambur for age group 0-5 years comprising of 1210, 300 children were brought for screening to the camp held over two days. 18 children with abnormalities in various categories were identified for further treatment. The screening was meticulously planned and perfectly executed by a team of 3 Senior Doctors, 6 Junior Doctors, 9 Nursing staffs, Secretary of CHIME and 4 Marketing executives.
Second phase of camp in Ambur in association with Farida Shoes was organized on 6th & 7th of July, 2012. Out of total 1720 children in the age group of 6years to 11 years, 596 children turned up for screening. Our team of doctors who participated with enthusiasm and a philanthropic heart worked relentlessly and identified 74 children with abnormalities and recommended appropriate procedures and course of action to their families.
Note: Some children are referred to more than 1 specialist w.r.t problems diagnosed
So far from both camps around 50 children have come to MIOT Hospitals for follow up and treatment. MIOT has gone a long way in creating health awareness among the community that had been ignorant of their issues and available treatment opportunities.
The camp also brought a lot of paediatric issues ranging from congenital defects, nutrition levels to everyday problems such as cold, coughs, and headaches. Certain deep seated psychology and psychiatric issues were also brought up. A number of common ailments were identified and given treatment on the spot during the camp; for the more serious issues ranging from congenital anomalies and minor surgeries the patients were asked to visit MIOT Hospitals. Treatment was undertaken for about 50 out of the 70 cases who came to MIOT Hospitals, CHENNAI.
The Management of the host organization was given a detailed report on the status of the children who were screened.
