“The eye of a human being is a microscope, which makes the world seem bigger than it really is because Eyes are the windows to the Soul.”
iCARE, during their previous interaction with Swami Vivekanand Medical Mission, came to know that a Medical Check-up Camp is on their cards to be organized for the villagers of Surabardi. The iCARE Project team led by Vandana Gour expressed their interest to drive the camp and worked together with SVMM to implement this initiative.
Surabardi village is situated 11kms away from district headquarters of Nagpur. The size of village is very small, with a population of about 30-35 families.
On fine cold morning of Monday, Dec 5, 2016, the iCARE team comprising of Ankita Murty, Sakshi Kulkarni, Omkar Lakhe and Manali Matey reached InfoCepts Phase – II by 7:45 AM. They started off and reached Surabardi by 9:30 AM. Upon reaching there, the first impression was – what a beautiful, neat and clean village. Associates took a small tour of the village and interacted with people there.
Mr. Milind Joshi, coordinator of the Jankalyankari Samiti were also present. While the camp was being set-up in a primary school, Milind shared the information about the village, its people and Samiti’s schemes and plans for their betterment. It was evident that the Samiti’s work already had a big impact on the village and the plans aims to improve their way of life in a phased manner.
Then, began the eye check-up, wherein Ankita and Sakshi took-over the entry register, Manali recorded the results of check-up with Omkar being the camp coordinator. The patients included children, working men and women and few senior citizens.
The team very well interacted with the villagers during the camp and ensured that all of them should get their check-up done effectively.
The villagers were greatly satisfied and expressed their gratitude to InfoCepts for this fruitful initiative.
