theSTEPs.org has organized a Healthcare Program in association with Dishari Foundation on February 10. The day long event was held at one of Dishari’s Pre-primary Education Centers in Darjibari, Uttara. SUPPORT acted as an implementing partner of the event.
The Pre-primary Education Centers of Dishari are enabling the underprivileged and deprived children with an access to rudimentary education and are also augmenting their health and nutritional aspects by serving them proper nutritional meals twice a day containing liquid milk, egg, bread or seasonal fruits.
The Healthcare Program was initiated to distribute Free Medical Check-up and Medicine for Mother and Child. The program was organized and funded by theSTEPs, where Renata Limited (a top pharmaceutical company) provided the required medicines for the event beneficiaries.
Around 100 kids were provided with required medicines and healthcare amenities throughout the day by a registered doctor. Essential medicines like Oral Saline, Cough Syrup, Painkillers, Medicines for deworming and special Multivitamins Syrup were distributed among the kids in the presence of their respective Class Teachers and Parents.
