Health ambassador, Rameshwar Naik, said, “Earlier people from rural areas had to go to the cities for treatment, but due to Girish Mahajan’s efforts, camps like these have been started in the rural areas. The purpose of this camp is early diagnosis and treatment of patients. If the patients needed to get operated, the entire treatment will be done free of cost. Many non-governmental organisations and ace doctors have started giving help for such camps.”
