An eye camp for the students at Hunar Ghar and the community in and around Bakhel was organised on October 4th in collaboration with Global Hospitaland Research Centre, Mount Abu. Hunar Ghar acts a community hub for undertaking health initiatives to the remote area of Bakhel panchyat. The eye camp is our one such initiative to secure a good eye health for our students/community and also diagnose serious issues in their primitive stages. Our health and community manager, Madhusudan Singh shares his experience..
Bakhel is an administrative region with limited access to reliable healthcare. Officially classified as ‘tribal’ by the government, the community of 367 households (2,088 individuals) has not benefited from rapid developments happening elsewhere in India. There is very limited infrastructure in place. Families survive through subsistence farming, with 98% of them living below the poverty-line.
Hunar Ghar’s health programs like the Bi-annual Eye Camp ensure community has access to reliable, professional and free healthcare.
