400 patients given free medicines in CRPF medical camp in Pampore

Pampore: The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) Battalions conducted a day-long free medical camp in the Pampore village area of South Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Friday.
The camp, jointly organized by the 110th and 185th CRPF battalions as part of the Civil Action program at Government Upper Primary School in Gundbal village, aimed to provide quality medical care and free medicines to the local residents and school students.
A large crowd of residents eager to benefit from the health services gathered at the camp, which was inaugurated by Arun Kumar Bharti, Commandant 185th Battalion, and Yogesh Purohit, Commandant 110th Battalion, along with senior citizens of the village and other CRPF officers.
A team of CRPF doctors and dental specialists from SDH Pampore conducted comprehensive medical check-ups for the local residents and ensured that women received medical attention without any hindrance, with two female doctors from CRPF on hand.
Approximately 400 people from the village and surrounding areas participated in the camp. Following the check-ups, free medicines were distributed to 400 patients, including women, children, and the elderly.
The schoolchildren and teachers at Government Upper Primary School in Gundbal also benefited from the medical camp and expressed their appreciation for the CRPF’s efforts.
Speaking to Kashmir Reader, Commandant Yogesh Prohit emphasized that this medical camp is not the first of its kind, with the 110th and 185th Battalions jointly organizing free medical camps in various villages in Pampore, Lethpora, and Awantipora. The camp in Gundbal village is a response to the requests of local residents who previously lacked access to such facilities.
Prohit further explained that the relationship between the CRPF and the local community has been improving over the past few years, fostering a strong bond between the CRPF and the public.
In this camp, the CRPF conducts its Civic Action Programme and community outreach programs at different locations to strengthen the relationship with the village and meet the needs of the community.
Commandant Arun Kumar Bharti stated that the 110th and 185th battalions organized the free medical camp in response to the lack of adequate medical facilities in the area. Such camps help build a strong and enduring connection with the local community, especially for those engaged in agricultural activities who struggle to access medical care in distant locations.
Mohammad Altaf, a teacher at UPS Gundbal, expressed his gratitude for the medical camp, highlighting its significant benefits for the local residents, including those who face transportation challenges in reaching hospitals. Free medicines provided at the camp were especially helpful for those living below the poverty line. “We are very grateful to CRPF for organizing this medical camp here,” he said.
