It was a learning experience to be part of the Eye and ENT camp arranged by Shree Jain Yough League of Thika in Kisumu county in this week from Monday till Thursday. Though I didn’t do much to help them but I observed quite a few interesting things from the camp about the patients’ registration, marketing the details of camp, logistics of the camp etc. It was worth spending four days in different locations for few hours.
The camp was conducted in four completely different locations around Kisumu; first day was at Ngere Primary school in Ahero, second was Konditi School at Peponditi, third was at Wagai primary school in Yala and forth was Jalaram School in Kisumu central.
Dr. S.K. Savla was leading the camp with eight doctors from India; he has been coming to Kenya for last 37 years in April to serve the local community for the eyes related problems specially cataract.
The very able team screened around 3900 patients for eyes related problems and 2300 ENT patients were checked. At the end of the camp, they found 265 people for cataract problem and 60 for ENT related who were to transported to Thika for further treatment.
It was truly pleasure to know Dr. Savla who has been so dedicated to this camp for last many years. His wife was equally passionate about helping Doctor in his work. I should appreciate the doctors who joined the team without expecting anything in return.
