Minor Surgeries Camp October 2006

Dr. S. Mitra, a retired doctor formally attached to the Government of India, volunteers his surgical expertise.

Dr Mitra carried out checks on 37 patients and operated on 17, using Haven's community centre as his base for the minor surgeries. All patients are now fully recovered and ther were no post-operative complications. This camp proved to be most useful as the injuries Dr Mitra had to deal with had been mainly caused by the hazardous conditions associated with field labour, the main type of employment for nearly all the the local villagers
