Medical Camp at Kodia
This past Sunday the medical camp team headed for the village Kodia for our weekly medical camp.
Amongst the patients seen by the team, diseases and illnesses treated included cases of diarrhoea and vomiting, constipation, lucorrehea, worms in children, posture problems, skin allergies, joint/shoulder/knee issues, and sciatic pain. Both adults and children presented dental problems, and there were cases of ear infection among children. In addition, several patients came just to confer with the medical team on medication and treatment they had been prescribed elsewhere.
Volunteers helped ease knee, shoulder and sciatica problems with massages and yoga postures.
A handwashing session was conducted to teach the children proper handwashing skills. After holding hygiene sessions volunteers distributed free toothbrushes to the participating children.
In addition to their medical services, the volunteers were also able to distribute donated crocheted baby blankets to mothers with babies.
Total of patients seen: 84
