Some one has rightly said,
Life laughs at you when you are unhappy ….
Life smiles at you when you are happy ……
But, Life salutes you when you make others happy.
When India celebrated 70th Independence Day on August 15, 2016 Vision Nationals had decided to touch some people with with free medical check up and medicines in Vizag City.
We had hoisted the flag at our campus, Visakhapatnam and prayed for the nation and under privileged. We remembered those lives that had not touched by the fruit of this freedom. The true liberty had not reached all the corners of our society. Corruption, communal tensions, violence, abuse of children and women, atrocities against the minority and religious intolerance, are still hindering the progress of the nation.
Many are struggling under the poverty line, suffering from malnutrition, living in the unhygienic conditions, and thereby quickly falling prey to plaques and diseases. Some of them never realize that they suffer from a disease. They neither have money to buy medicine, nor chance to see a doctor.
Independence Day…..Medical Camp:
In the light of the Independence Day Celebrations, to bring some freedom into the lives of these underprivileged people, we had conducted a FREE MEDICAL CAMP at Madhurawada Master’s Fellowship on Aug 15, 2016.
Six doctors, Dr. Reeta Prasad (General Medicine), Dr.Anila Nayar (Dermatologist), Dr.P.J.Sudhakar (ENT Specialist), Dr. Premalatha (Ophthalmologist), Dr.Ananda Kumari (Gynecologist), and Dr. Kalyan (General Medicine) conducted free checkups for the people. Our own children home product P. Srinuvasu Rao, who is undergoing training as a house surgeon, and two nurses from the church assisted them.
We had seen people that had not seen a doctor for years though they were sick, some gave up hopes due to frustrations of their lives and due to no finances and some others are really tired of lives. Some had serious eye problems and never effort to have eye glasses. We had touched nearly 170 people- free check up and medicines were provided. Eye glasses had been ordered and given later on.
We thank the Doctors, pray that the fruits of freedom would reach every nook and corner of the society, and realize the task would be fulfilled only with a sacrificial move.
Jesus said, ‘For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in, I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you looked after Me, I was in prison and you visited Me.’(Matt 25:36-37)
