Bishop Rayarala and the PIME India Region have updated us on the medical dispensaries project in the Eluru Diocese. The Bishop informs us that the “dispensary access points” continue to implement health checks and medical camps in 8 villages of the PIME – Fr. Luigi Pozzoli Memorial Hospital target areas; these include Hanuman Nagar, Gavaravaram, Venkateswara Colony, Satrampadu, Xavier Nagar, Duggirala, Joseph Nagar, and Koppaka gudem. The following services continue to be provided to the needy thanks to your generosity: general medical consultations; blood sugar testing for diabetes (Kidney, etc.); blood pressure checks; orthopedic, ENT, gynecological, and dermatological consultations; screening for vision issues and optical medication and referrals to higher/government hospitals as needed by patients for counseling, medication distribution and regular follow up.
