December 15 - Unity of Education and Health

Ruth Sigmon Memorial Lutheran Hospital along with Top Kids School conducted a free medical camp at the Rajiv Gruha Kalpa in Swarnabharathi Nagar Locality, one of the biggest slums in Guntur. The Director of Top Kids School, Mrs. Latha Thomas organised the medical camp. Children of 9th &10th classes prepared charts on clean water and sanitation and gave a health education talk to the residents. The Principal Mrs. Anupama, office staff and some teachers  were there throughout the camp to help run the camp. We addressed the patients and talked about the need for taking care of our own health and importance of regular checkups.

           

The school children were taught about preventive, promotive, curative and rehabilitative health and importance of timely referral and the judicious use of tertiary medical services. The children took part in all aspects of the camp like registration of patients, accompanying patients through the health checkup, lab testing and issue of medicines. It was a great learning experience for the school children and we are sure they understood more about the health problems of the slum populations. About 200 people attended the camp and availed the services. It was a satisfying experience for all of us to share our love and expertise with them.
