Udaipur, May 14, 2020: To fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, Narayan Seva
Sansthan (NSS) conducted free of cost special LIVE health consultancy sessions for
differently-abled individuals and non-COVID-19 patients. The campaign was titled, “Paramarsh.”
As a part of the campaign, senior Doctors provided free LIVE health consultancy
sessions to the differently-abled. The campaign was running LIVE from 10th May to
14th May, daily from 10 am onward for 1 hour, on Facebook and Youtube.
Throughout the 5 day live sessions, around 15 thousands Non-COVID-19 patients
and differently-abled individuals got the chance to pose their health related queries
around Naturopathy, Artificial limbs, and Physiotherapy. During the LIVE sessions,
pertinent questions were about heel pain, rheumatoid arthritis, bone tenderness, joint
pain, lower back pain, knee pain, slip disc, nerve bulge and joint movement pain.
At Narayan Seva Sansthan Hospital, Dr. Manas Ranjan Sahu said, in this current
environment, differently abled people are facing several health issues like Lower
right leg pain, nerve compression, joint movement problem and bone pain at home
and they do not have any access to affordable quality healthcare facilities. This is
why, NSS initiated this campaign under the guidance of Prashant Agarwal, President
(NSS) to address such issues.
Since the first lockdown announcement on March 24th, 2020, more than 76,000 food
packets, 40,000 masks, and 1850 families’ ration materials had been distributed
amongst the needy. Also, differently abled are contributing to the efforts by sewing
masks and making PPE kits to protect our frontline saviors.
