Health Scheme for Fishermen who saved lives.
Kerala witnessed unprecedented rain fall and floods in the month of August and tens of thousands of people were stranded across various districts in Kerala. Rescue & Relief measures of the Govt. couldn’t reach the areas of maximum damage due to inaccessibility.
The fisherman community of our state had perceived the imminent dangers of loss of lives of many and they proceeded to the flood affected area with their Boats. They were successfully able to save the lives of thousands of our brothers and sisters braving violent flood waters.
It is only appropriate that we acknowledge the selfless services rendered by them. Swasthi Foundation & S.N Global Mission committed to social services has envisaged a project to ensure the healthcare of the fishermen in association with the TSSS.
A brief note about the project is given below.
A team of more than 40 eminent doctors from Swasthi Foundation & Sree Narayana Global Mission will lead a comprehensive health scheme for the fishermen from Trivandrum who saved thousands of life during the flooding.
The first phase will include a checkup camp at TSSS, Vellayambalam and issue of identity and health cards. The fishermen requiring further medical checkup will be directed to the appropriate centre for further management.
The team of doctors are from Government Medical College, Dental College, RCC, RIO ( Government Eye Hospital ), Jothydev Diabetes Centre, Sree Gokulam Medical College, GG Hospital, PMS Dental College and Divya Prabha Eye Hospital will conduct the health camps and follow up activities.
