Samvedna Camp 9, Reaching the unreached

The 9th Samvedna Medical camp was held at Nugrasu, a remote Himalayan village in the district of Rudraprayag, Uttarakhand. It was encouraging to have government officials and elected representatives attend the camp.
Free medicines were distributed to more than 250 patients.  A group of street performers electrified the setting with amusing but very informative skits on health & hygiene, importance of cleanliness, sanitation and misplaced beliefs. The people showed keen interest in the performances and some even offered to perform, making it an informative, interactive and a memorable camp.
This was the first time that folk theatre and dance was used to create awareness and to sensitize the audiences about disability. This has been a very effective medium of communicating to the people particularly in the mountain villages. It is planned that such an initiative will become a regular feature of the Samveda Program for the Differently Abled.

Nugrasu, a remote Himalayan village in the district of Rudraprayag, Uttarakhand was venue for our recent medical camp. People from far flung villages collected at the camp in hope for medical attention.

Visitors at KHW India - A holiday with a difference!
Ten affected children will be housed in what is the first of hopefully many more homes. This project has been undertaken in partnership with the Peniel Christ Church, Tambaran. The ground floor of the Church is to be converted into a comfortable home for the children. As part of Kinderhilfswerk Global Care, Germany’s Work camp initiative, three German volunteers, Gerd Krueger-precision engineer, Rolf Schild-computer engineer and musician and Uwe Neumann-master carpenter spent three weeks helping build this new home for the HIV/AIDS affected children. It was a holiday with a difference!
