‘Waste Warriors’ holds free health check-up camp

Dehradun, 28 May: With the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and a beverage company, the NGO, Waste Warriors Society, joined hands with CHC, Raipur, to conduct a free health check camp for all the people working for the environment. The camp was conducted at the Community Health Centre, today, from 10 a,m. to 1 p.m. The programme was inaugurated by Dr Anand Shukla, Superintendent, CHC, Raipur.
It is often seen that people, who work on keeping the environment clean from day to night are unable to avail services to protect themselves from the consequences of coming in contact with garbage waste, such as respiratory, skin, heart related diseases, blood disorders, etc. In view of all these problems, for their better and healthful life, all the stakeholders came together to organise this health camp for the first time.
The programme saw the participation of 50 patients for several check-ups, along with getting free medicines.
The camp was successfully conducted with the help of Shubham Mishra, Rahul Panwar and Anushi Chauhan from Waste Warriors Society, Dr Anand Shukla, and Administrative officer CK Bhatt.
