The camp targeted at those with ENT issues and people with physical disabilities. The camp was financially assisted by the Gurkha Welfare Trust and coordinated by the District Hospital of Humla and the Simkot Rural Municipality. The beneficiaries were given free medicines, according to camp manager Jaya Limbu.
During the four-day camp that started on August 28, forty-five people with disabilities received the services. The beneficiaries were from all seven local levels in the district. Among the visitors, 15 were referred to Kathmandu and Nepalgunj for further medical treatment and their treatment expenses will be borne by the trust itself.
The camp was organised for the convenience of the rural people who could not afford to visit outside districts for medical care.
A team of 28 people including five medical specialists and 24 health workers rendered the service. Likewise, hearing aids and artificial organs were distributed to the needy where a surgery for cataract was organised as well.
