We examined 22 patients and provided suitable medicine out of which majority of the males were having skin infections due to waterlogging. About 23 families were residing in that locality out of which 107 were in the camp.

There were few tribal families with children undernourished and with the worm infections

Third Campsite was a huge one with 1500 inmates. There was a regular medical team working on-site daily. we discussed with Panamaram PHC staff and examined 5 patients as referred cases and provide a specialist opinion.

The first group reached the first Campsite at 10.30 am. at Thrikkaipatta Government High School. Along with the village officer and other PHC staff were present. We examined 79 patients out of which few cases where with fever and RTI. There were about 200 people in the camp for 5 days.

The second camp was at St. Thomas Jacobite Syrian Church, Thrikkaipatta. There were 33 patients out of 195 residents. Most of the patients were suffered from fever and waterlogging diseases.

The third camp was held at government UP School Kottapadi. In fact, there were more than 200 members but due to some good weather, many had gone back to their residence. Around 20 families were present in the camp and 11 patients came for a consultation and benefited from the camp.

In all the camps the major problems where skin-related issues and generally all the people are anxious and some are in need of psychological help. There is a need for rehabilitation for many families.
