The sick among the poor especially in the slums of Chennai have very little access to health care. Those relocated after the Tsunami and Chennai Floods are also in similar situation, away from medical facilities.
MCDS Clinic on Wheels launched in April 2006, consisting of a doctor and supporting staff with sufficient stock of medicines visit stipulated areas from Monday through Saturday. Our mobile unit visits also the schools in these areas and screen the entire students.
MCDS is grateful to the management of Ford Motors Limited, Chennai for sponsoring the Mobile Ambulance.
Young children and school going students needs to be educated on dental hygiene to prevent damage to their gum and teeth. This awareness should be instilled at young age. The MCDS Dental Clinic on wheels consisting of a mobile unit fully fitted with dental equipments and audio visual materials reaches out to the poor children in corporation schools.
MCDS thanks Mr. Ulrich Walter, Lebensbaum, Germany, for making it happen.
