July 16, 2018, 1:21 pm

The 'OneNess Association' that serves Indians in Kuwait by promoting sociocultural and humanitarian activities, organized a medical screening camp in collaboration with Indian Doctors Forum (IDF) and Kuwait Medical Association (KMA) on Friday, 6 July at the Indian Community School in Salmiya. This was one of the association's efforts to promote the importance of service to the community irrespective of cast, creed or color.  

Organized by Naresh Lahoria, Incharge, OneNess Association, Dr. Preeti Jolly, Member, OneNess Association and IDF and Dr. Sunny Varghese, Community Secretary, IDF, along with other active members of the association the camp attended to over 200 community members.

About 30 volunteers gathered at the camp and put in a tremendous effort to clean and organize the venue. There were dedicated rooms for registration,  vital statistics and initial blood checkups and various specialties. Every room had the required equipment for basic medical examination with screens put in place for patient privacy. A dark room was also set up for ophthalmology and vision testing.

Out of all the individuals screened, a large number of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiac cases were detected and referred for further follow-up with professionals.

As the individuals had come in fasting, a special provision was made to provide them with community meals following the checkup.

The IDF team led by Dr. Surendra Nayak, President, rendered their full support with various specialists who gave their valuable time for this noble cause. A memento was presented by the Association to IDF as a token of gratitude for the selfless services rendered by the doctors.

The OneNess Association kicked off its activities in the community with this medical screening camp and looks forward to contributing further with equal efforts and dedication.
