WONDERWorks held a Well-Woman Camp at the Support Centre on Thursday 30th May. Working with the excellent services of the Nahuda medical team and Sparsh, we were able to screen ninety-one women throughout the day.
Everyone who came received a gynaecological check up and consultation, VIA screening (for cervical cancer), a breast examination, a urine test for protein and glucose and an HIV test.
Seventy-five percent of those who attended were new patients and twenty-five percent were follow ups from our previous camp. Seventy percent were prescribed medication, which they were able to collect from our centre the following day.
Our Mehndi students seized the opportunity to practice their skills, offering a free henna design to anyone who had completed their check up and many of the ladies took up this offer as they enjoyed their snacks.
The health camp was provided entirely free of charge to participants, with all costs, including medications, supported by WONDERWorks – and we were able to provide this comprehensive screening for just US$7.90 per person.
