With blessings from HH Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji, a health Awareness Camp was conducted.

The camp was conducted in the premises of The Southern Textile Ltd, Sulur which is a suburb in Coimbatore. The camp was conducted there keeping in mind the working class people who live in the surroundings. Camp started at 9am with lighting the lamp by chief guest who is a doctor from a nearby hospital and the camp doctor Srimathi Chitra and then a prayer by the volunteers.

In an unbelievable gesture, Vehicles were sent from the mills to the nearby villages to bring the women for attending the camp. Prior to the camp a survey was done in which 200 questionnaires were filled up and awareness created in those areas and out of them 127 women attended. After screening 40 were identified as follow up cases and asked to go for further tests and treatment. Some were referred to general checkups and some others were distributed free medicines for various health issues. Here are the details:
