The Mobile ICU, along with a team of doctors from the Amrita Institute of the Medical Sciences (AIMS), Kochi arrived at our base camp at Agastya Muni. Kedarnath MLA – Mrs Shaila Rani Rawat visited the facilities that we have been providing and was appreciative of the efforts of MAM.
Fourteen hundred patients have been given free medicines and consultation in the four days that we have been here. Patients are coming from all the surrounding villages – sometimes walking up to 20 kms to reach here.
The mobile telemedicine unit is on the way and is expected to reach Rudraprayag by tomorrow. Even though so many patients have been coming here, the teams plan to move up into the villages high up in the mountains from tomorrow, as there are many people who are cut off and not able to reach medical aid.
