There is a saying, ‘when the queen is happy there is peace in the kingdom’. However, we believe that ‘when the queen is healthy and happy only then can there be peace and prosperity in the kingdom’. So SRCF found no better day than 08th March, International Women’s Day, to conduct a health camp for the women of Ramtekdi community, focussing on Breast Cancer and Anaemia.
Senior Gynaecologist Dr Gupta conducted a talk on Breast Cancer and a group session for women, wherein they were taught different methods to screen themselves for Breast Cancer. The women were later on examined by Dr Gupta as well.
45 women from the community took the Haemogram test, which was offered at reduced rates. The result of the tests revealed 8 women to be anaemic, with a Haemoglobin (Hb) count ranging between 7 and 9.
SRCF is planning to conduct a group session for these women in end of March, to educate them about Anaemia and the different ways to improve their Hb count. We are working on identifying partners who can support SRCF’s efforts to reduce the incidence and severity of Anaemia in the community.

As an organization, we strongly believe that all individuals, irrespective of their caste, creed, religion or economic status, should have access to the best possible medical care. In keeping with this belief, we established ‘Anand Chhaya’ – a medical facility in Ramtekdi, Pune which is one of the largest slums in Pune.
Over the past two months, we have supported the residents by extending Medical and Physiotherapy services at our Facility as well as at their homes.
We constantly endeavour to reach out to the largest number of people not only for treatment purposes but also for spreading awareness about different health conditions.
In January of this year, we conducted a health camp to create awareness about the importance of physio-therapeutic interventions and exercises in managing chronic orthopaedic ailments such as Arthritis, Frozen shoulder, etc.
In February, we held a medical camp to address problems related to Diabetes and Hypertension. The team focussed on creating awareness about the common yet life impacting medical conditions, their early identification and effective management to avoid further complications. The camp was attended by 83 residents of the community, showing their active participation in improving their community’s health on the whole.
On International Woman’s Day, next week, our team is working towards assessing overall health of women in the community with a focus on Diabetes, Anaemia and Breast Cancer.
If you would like SRCF to conduct health camps in your community of choice, please feel free to contact us.
