IT was such an important day for the long-suffering people of the Vijayawada dump as we launched our KISES mobile health camp.
Our Dr Reddy reported that every adult and child he examined was in poor health and his first patient, Maryamma, was clearly struggling with a fever.
Free medicines were provided to all, including vitamin shots, food parcels were handed out and some new donated clothes presented to the younger children.
This camp will be the first of many and we are extremely grateful to our local doctor for leaving his practice and travelling out to the dump to help these needy, under-nourished rag-pickers of all ages.
Please donate to my personal GoFundMe page (www.gofundme.com/changing_lives_in_india) or to our new KISES India website (www.kisesindia.com/donate) to help us afford running costs for this, and other life-changing programmes.
