My Himachal Health Mela Report from the field
Kullu: We’re in the beautiful rural village of Pedcha where the third day of our rural health camp is underway…the primary school here is bustling with activity…kids singing, playing, learning and being informed and attended to by our health team. Through the medium of Kalajata, a traditional street play, the health team is trying to bring out the importance of health to the children. The motto here is “Hamaara Swasthya, Hamaari Zimmedari” which translates to “Our health is our own responsibility.”
The health workers engaged in an interactive session with the kids, informing them about the nutritional pyramids in their open classrooms i.e open mountainside overlooking snow-capped mountains. We’re hoping that tomorrow’s health camp shall be even more fruitful!
