Volunteers (KOVs) of Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) held a
Medical and Educational Camp for 750 people in Janakinagar of Sarlahi district,
Nepal, for three days.
Most of the treated
patients had been suffering from inflammation in the middle ear, arthralgia and
high blood pressure. Also, an orientation on environment, hygiene, basic
physical exercise was given to 400 children at the camp as well.
KOICA expected the
health camp to be an opportunity to raise not only the health standards of
those who lack easy access to health facilities, but also the emotional
interaction between the community and KOVs. KOICA also hoped that this kind of
program will enhance the cultural bond, mutual understanding and friendship
between the two countries.
