Kolkata – Nov 10-2017 : 1) with the brand of GOOD CAUSES KOL – a society duly formed in Kolkata in 2014 – our initial ‘social efforts’ started rolling with few topics – which included Attending Health Camps at various places in & around Kolkata and later, in January 2017 we gave our mind seriously to Organising EYE CAMPS – specifically known as D R Camps (Diabetic Retinopathy Camps) in and around the city, with the help of a big NGO from Mumbai. We did our 1st D R Camp – at Rishra (under Hooghly district). Our ‘target beneficiaries’ were mainly slum-dwellers of the near-by places and people from lower financial strata. But finally people from all walks of life and belonging to various professions took part in our Eye Camp. Some 35/40 names were there whom we enlisted for the camp.
2) Gradually we carried on, conducted these D R Camps at many places – which are intended to find out & to document as per standard ‘health guidelines’ followed in general – the status, also the extent of damage of RETINAS of a person – suffering from Diabetes, the dreaded disease. The Total Procedure related to D R Camps – also includes Eye Check-ups & Medical Advice – dispensed from ‘enlisted centres’ operating across the city area.
