Medical camp to Kaaza

Medical camp in Kaaza

In continuity with our recent medical camp to Pangi which successfully concluded on 28th of June, we were able to take in a medical camp to Kaaza, from the 1st to the 4th of July 2022. This camp again, was a resumption of our services in a post covid world. The folk of Kaaza were very glad to see us after this gap of three years. We stayed at our centre, but had our camp in the civil hospital. Again, our team consisted of doctors, ultrasound, physiotherapy, dentist, pharmacist, and laboratory technician. We saw 500 patients in two days and performed over one hundred ultrasound examinations, extracted teeth, provided physiotherapy, lab tests and medicines, performed some endoscopies and small minor procedures.  We are very glad to be able to provide these services to the people of Kaaza, who have to travel out of Kaaza to seek any specialized medical help. In these interim years we find that Kaaza is in the process of transformation, as home stays proliferate and tourists flock to this remote location, competing for the already sparse availability of water and electricity. We are concerned to consider what this would mean for the place in the years to come.
