MUMBAI, MAY 1, 2017: A health checkup camp was organised at Bainganwadi, Govandi by Don Bosco Balprafulta Saksham Centre on April 20. 

Doctor Ravi Magare and Doctor Nargis Nandagavli checked over 100 children during the camp. The staff of Don Bosco Balprafulta conducted a drawing activity based on health issues. A session on tuberculosis awareness was also held for the benefit of parents and children.


The purpose of the camp was to create awareness about health and hygiene among the students living in Govandi, as it is the biggest dumping ground of Mumbai city. 


During the summer holidays, many children visit the dumping yard to collect scraps and make money. The awareness is aimed at helping the kids take precautionary health measures.
