AASARAA’s supporting old age program organizes regular health-checkup camps

Join Us In Our Campaign To Help Our Elders

Health is a fundamental human right.But due to socio-economic differences, not everyone is fortunate enough to enjoy the benefits of proper medical support. Specially the elderly who find it difficult due to accessibility and affordability.

AASARAA’s supporting old age program organizes regular health-checkup camps with the help of experienced medical professionals and volunteers. The primary objective is to provide health checkup to elderly beneficiaries, in poorer areas, who cannot afford proper medical care or do not have access to health services. These elderly people from very poor families, whose existence is virtually hand to mouth, cannot afford medical care and therefore struggle with illness and disease, losing income and being condemned to abject poverty. Their livelihood source is mainly daily wages; however they remain unemployed for some months in a year due to illness. In rare cases, many undergo treatment under their respective block medical facilities, which have an insufficient quantity of medicines.

During the general health camp, beneficiaries get a complete checkup with a course of free medication. They are also given awareness on health and hygiene, and precautions to be taken against several diseases. These camps are organized after conducting surveys to understand the prevalent diseases in the area and based on the report an assessment of the need is done.

Some activities involved in conducting the health camps are

The demand is big and so are the challenges. But, together we can make a difference.
