The first Campsite chosen for us was 3 shoplots belonging to one family.
One end was a food restaurant which was still open for business whilst the
Medical Camp was on. It was a great challenge to set up a medical Camp.
Space was limited and rather odd shape. But we managed somehow.
Once we have recce the whole Campsite, the first order is to set up Camp, before
patients and main team arrive. For this we depend very much on the young
volunteer force of our logistics partner. They performed admirably through both the
Medical Camps. I am greatly indebted to them – the Impian volunteers
Volunteers finished setting up Camp site. Now waiting for patients to appear

The sun has set. The lights are switched on. We were working till 10pm
to see 146 patients
We ate when ever there was a break in patients.

Sun sets and we were still working.
The dentists were working with torchlight backup. The room light in
this kitchen was too dim.
