Jalluru, East Godavari District, AP
 
A Medical camp has been conducted by Bighelp in Jalluru village, Pithapuram Mandal, East Godavari district. A team of 5 doctors from nearby towns, Kakinada and Rajahmundry, have volunteered and provided free services during the camp and performed Physical examination, Dental checkup and Eye examination for 220 students at Jalluru Primary school.

An assessment on health and hygienic conditions of students at Jalluru Primary school was undertaken by Bighelp project committee at Jalluru project, and determined that many of the children have poor oral hygiene or physical health. Most of the students at this public school are financially poor and unable to consult doctors for routine medical examinations with their own expenses. Hence the Bighelp project committee worked with doctors for providing free medical examination, performing dental cleaning and creating awareness of their health and general care for the students at this school, by organizing a medical camp. Team of 5 doctors, Bighelp project committee members from Jalluru project, Bighelp executive members from Hyderabad office and several local Bighelp volunteers have participated in this Medical camp and helped doctors to perform Physical examination, dental checkup and eye examination for 220 students. After the checkup Bighelp has provided Tooth paste, Vitamins and medicine for free of cost to all students.
