UDHAMPUR: To address the medical problems of populace in far flung and remote areas, a Medical Camp was conducted at Badhal village of Rajouri district. Badhal is a remote village in Rajouri district and is devoid of basic medical facilities. The local population has to travel for long distances through difficult terrain to get basic medical facilities. Such initiatives by the Army have not only enabled patients to be treated closer to their homes but also helped in increasing awareness about cleanliness, hygiene and healthy living.
More than 400 patients, including men, women and children were provided medical treatment and check-up by the medical staff. Medicines were also distributed to the patients. The medical staff also provided counselling on hygiene and sanitation, importance of safe drinking water and modern-day health lifestyle related diseases. The medical camp was well received by the local populace.
Speaking on the occasion on behalf of the locals, Sarpanch of the village expressed his gratitude and appreciation towards the Army for its pledge towards addressing the medical problems of the locals. He said that the Army has always worked towards bringing good health and happiness to the needy village folk and the region as a whole.
