IAHV Medical camp at Nagapattinam
Medical Camp at Nagapattinam
The Medical camp on 31st December 2004 was at Prathaparamapuram about 2 kms from Velankanni. About 400 people came for the medical camp on the 31st and the remaining 120 people from the same village were attended to on 1st Jan. 2005. The Government Doctors themselves are showing us around the villages where medical attention is required and they have been very happy with our camps. These officials were mentioning that most of the other doctor-teams, which visited the place, did not stay on for long, to give quality treatment and they were very thankful to the team.
In the remaining part of day (1st Jan), we treated about 350 people from a village called Ramarmadham. Here again the camp was completed with the beneficiaries getting medicines and relief material. About 4 or 5 families from a village called Serudur, which is right next to Velankanni, were also part of this camp. They were very touched by the way they were treated in the camp and also narrated their harrowing experiences of the disaster.
They are part of 50 survivors who withstood the fury, which wiped out the village of 4000 inhabitants. It was a wonderful experience to be able to help there distressed people with your grace.
Anu, Rajani, Jayashree, Ravi and the team!!
