Our first big event was a Medical Camp at Ramakrishna Mission Hospital in Haridwar, India. His Holiness Swami Satyamitranand Giriji inaugurated the camp in September, 2017. A team of doctors and nurses from the UK, USA and India saw more than 750 patients over a 3 day period, including 150 eye examinations and over 80 spectacles were dispensed. Previously unidentified diabetes, hypertansion, thyroid disorders, blood conditions, heart disease and suspected cancer was diagnosed.

We established a partnership aith the Ramakrishna Mission Hospital which will form a basis for future collaborative projects.

More than £10,000 was raised from generous donors. The sum was used for the expenses of the camp and as donations toward the work of the Mission hospital.

All 17 volunteers paid for their own travel and accommodation expenses. All donations were used directly to support charitable purposes.
