Free Medical Camps
Tuesday, August 11, 2009
The Sathya Sai Service Organization of Fiji will undertake free medical services in the rural areas of Northern and Western Division with the assistance of medical volunteers and other personnel from New Zealand, Australia, including local practitioners.
Chairman of Sathya Sai Service Organization Dr Narendra Reddy says medical camps have been organized for villagers in Daku and Vunika and today they are conducting clinics in Tukavesi.
He says from this Friday the group will be providing services in the western division.
“This year we are having 2 big medical camps in 2 regions. One is being performed in Vanua Levu this week and there are 34 doctors in that group. 32 from New Zealand, 1 from Australia and I from Australia. The second group is coming later this week.”
He said the group of 32 Australian doctors will be concentrating largely on Viti Levu. He adds consultations will be provided by experienced medical personnel.
“These doctors come with all the different fields in medicine so they are gynecologists, dentists, physiotherapists, general practitioners and all the various fields in medicine. The group will consist of just about all the major needs of places. On that basis they come here.”
Dr Reddy says they have been organizing these free medical camps from 2005 and every year more than 4000 people benefit from this.
The Sai Medicare camps will be undertaken from 9.00am to 3.00pm daily.
