As is the saying, “Health is the real wealth”, therefore, maintaining one’s health is a very important part of life. Healthy mind resides in a healthy body. Manthan-SVK, an initiative by Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan is working relentlessly for the benefit of underprivileged children of the society. Manthan not only focuses on their education but also their physical and mental well being. To ensure this, several health camps are organized at regular intervals in the centres. On World Health day 2019, multiple medical camps were organized in the all centres of Manthan-SVKs in the month of April.
In the Shakurpur centre, dental camp was organized by Sai Mobident Dental center. Esteemed doctors such as Dr. Abhinav, Dr. Laveesha, Dr. Mahar and Dr. Kuldeep gave their time and services for the check-up of children. Both students and parents were the beneficiary of this camp. Doctors shared a number of good oral health tips with the students. The students that were found having some oral problems was provided with free mouth gel and mouth wash.
