Jammu: Senior BJP leader Devender Singh Rana today lauded the missionary role of Shri Mal Mata Sukrala Devi Dharmik Trust for holding free medical camps for the ailing and poor, saying such efforts are imperative for ensuring a disease-free society.

Speaking at the conclusion of a daylong camp organized by the Trust in association with Jammu Kashmir Gau Raksha Samiti in the premises of Gaushalla Jammu,  Rana called for massive outreach of health services across the Union Territory with the aim to ensure health for all and to generate awareness about various diseases.

He said the effort will go a long way in reaching out to the people virtually at their doorsteps. General awareness and regular check-ups can help fight various maladies and ensure a disease-free society. He said the people, especially the old, women and children need constant check-ups and monitoring. He hoped such philanthropic organizations would come forward in a big way and help in making the mission of health for all a huge success.

Lauding the selfless role of Dr Sushil Sharma for remaining at the forefront of such efforts, Dender Rana said the ailing people see hope in him because of his compassion, care and expertise. He described Dr Sushil Sharma as a valuable asset to society.

Dr. Sushil Sharma appreciated the efforts of Shri Mal Mata Sukrala Devi Dharmik Trust and Jammu Kashmir Gau Raksha Samiti for holding this medical camp for the welfare of needy people. He said the religious organizations are filling the much-needed gap by improving the relationship between religion and health, focusing especially on prioritizing the health needs of the common populace. He stated that religious organizations can serve as key implementation sites for health promotion and disease prevention to reach the marginalized population. 

Tript Shastri, Shri Mal Mata Sukrala Devi Trust Chairman and Raj Kumar Gupta President Jammu Kashmir Gau Raksha Samiti expressed gratitude to the people for their participation in the camp.

Tript Shastri urged the people present on the occasion to seize every opportunity for health check-ups and also keep their environs clean and hygienic for a healthy lifestyle and lead a disease-free life. He assured that such camps would be organized on a regular basis with the aim to serve society.

Gupta said the purpose of holding such medical camps is to generate awareness on various diseases and also identify such patients, who otherwise are unaware of health-related problems and get timely Medicare. He said such camps help people to identify deficiencies so that they can have specialized treatment in health institutions on a regular basis. He said such medical camps are also imperative to ensure a disease-free society, where a person is hard-pressed to care for self-being during daily busy routines. He asserted that endeavours would be made to organize similar camps across the Union Territory.
