Project description: MEDICAL CAMPS IM HIMALAYA GEBIET

The medical care in large regions of the Himalayas is almost non-existent. Therefore, "Medical Camps" are organized by the Dr. G M P Foundation. Within the framework of such "Medical Camps", the mountain population receive free medical treatment.

Intended to be the event of "Charity Medical Camps" at regular intervals for the mountain population of the Himalayan region of Uttarakhand
The mountain region of Uttarakhand is officially declared by the Indian government as a "backward region" (backward region), since the living conditions are very hard there
The mountain population in this region suffers from great poverty. The area is regularly visited by natural disasters - earthquakes, floods, landslides.
- Successive establishment of basic medical care in this region
- Enlightenment on hygiene and preparedness
- motivation of the mountain population medical assistance if required in To take a claim
Since February 2013 there is a hospital in Vikasnagar for the first time Main market or transhipment point for the products of the miners). The Kalindi Hospital is a hospital with the specialties of surgery, internal medicine, orthopedics, urology, gynecology, paediatrics and opthalmology
The Kalindi Hospital is supported by our foundation. . We have introduced and sponsored the "Charity Medical Camps" for the mountain population since March 2013. The costs of a medical camp amount to approx. Euro 5000.- Within the scope of Medical Camps, the following services are offered free of charge:
• Medical examination and diagnostics (X-ray, ultrasound, laboratory). • Medicines
• Surgical procedures and internal interventions
• Consumption and assembly material

The patients are from the surrounding mountain regions. These medical camps find a great response among the population and are very well received
A total of 830 patients were treated at the three-day medical camp at the end of March 2013 for internal medicine, orthopedics, surgery and urology.
At the second-day medical camp at the end of May 2013, 183 children were provided for pediatrics
The second-day medical camp at the end of June 2013 was visited by 404 patients. At the two-day Orthopedic Medical Camp at the end of July 2013, there were 293 patients.
