Pooja Sai Ashram Medical Care in Bali
On the July 27, 2018, members and youth of the Pooja Sai Ashram continued their monthly medical care to one of the many remote places in Bali. This month the event was held at Kedisan Village, Kintamani, a region located deep in the centre of Bali. The aim of the Seva was to provide basic medical care and conduct general screening of the elder population in Kedisan. Many elderly people still have difficulty obtaining medical care.
A total of 110 patients were examined that day. Most patients suffer from chronic disease such as arthritis, hypertension and cataract. Patients with mild disease were given medicine on the spot, meanwhile those with severe disease were referred to local hospitals. Local children also joined the program. The youth gathered the children and entertained them with various games and dances. The event ended with a visit to the local temple for prayers.
