It had been a while since the medical electives ensemble of Internship Nepal had driven their volunteer works outside of the hospital. This time we had a batch of fresh qualified people deliver for us. Last week marked a prosperous and eventful outing as we set up an Internship Nepal “Free Health Camp” at Children Model Secondary High School. Located in Baluwatar, the school has established itself as a prominent institution since years. Two of our students Hani Mikhail and Leanne de Vries pursuing the Medical Electives program at Kathmandu Model Hospital and Kanti Children Hospital respectively, were designated for and worked their hearts out in successfully conducting a day long health camp.
The camp was put up outside in the premises of the school, where students of Grade 7, 8 and 9 were taken into consideration. On what turned out to be a lovely morning, students stood in queues waiting for their turn as our extraordinarily kind doctors examined and interrogated students on hygiene basis. The Health Camp focused entirely on hygiene and sanitary habits of students and what diseases and symptoms they should possibly be precautious about. Necessary precautions and in some case, medicines were prescribed for specific students.
This event wouldn’t have been attainable without the inevitably credible efforts and cooperation of some gentlemen of school authority. The very humble Mr. Yubraj Bhandari who’s the Principal and Mr. Devraj Regmi who’s the standing chairperson of the school ensured that we made it through with the event without any obstructions, technical and else. Hani and Leanne were praised for their dedication and for calmly running the camp in day’s heat without complaints. The school looks forward to cooperating with such programs in the near future. Internship Nepal pledges to sharpen skills in such decisive methods and practical approaches, while making difference in every aspects it steps on. After a day long patience and tiring efforts, our students took a break for the colorful festival of Holi and are back at work like proactive champs once again!
