Free health camp by UDHAVI  - May 2023

UDHAVI, an Adyar based NGO focusing on elder care and related issues, organised a free health camp for 100 underprivileged persons, mostly seniors. Doctors from Curi Hospital checked the patients for health issues; Agarwal Hospital conducted eye checkup and offered followup and free cataract surgery if required.
