Periodic health check up is necessary for early diagnosis of disease and leading a healthier life. Unfortunately, most of the people of lower socio economic class do not get the chance to have a full health check up and sometimes a small health problem turns into a serious issue. For this reason, we are arranging this health camp in mohammadpur which will provide them a free health check up.
