Himalaya has been working with local government schools around the vicinity of the Makali campus providing free health services to students belonging to low income groups.
This is in the form of free and holistic health checkup camps. Through this initiative, we intend to build healthy communities in our neighbourhood. We have covered more than 40 government schools around Makali and Nelmangala and reached out to more than 20,000 students from the age of 6 to 15. For most of the children this was their first professional health check ever, which includes height, weight, general health, dental health and vision testing. We have even distributed glasses to over 1000 students for vision correction. During the camps, parents are also invited so that the lessons learnt can stay alive longer and become a habit.
