HUMANITARIAN organisation United Sikhs organised a free health camp together with Gurdwara Sahib Titiwangsa and Malaysia Foodbank Organisation in conjunction with Vaisakhi.

The one-day event was held at Gurdwara Sahib Titiwangsa in Kuala Lumpur.

The NGO’s director Sunil Singh said the camp was to provide a general medical screening for the public.

“During this Covid-19 pandemic period, there are many who lost their jobs and have also

neglected their health due to this reason.

“Initially, we helped families with provisions, only to realise that people need medical assistance too, ” said Sunil.

He said more than 250 people attended the free medical screening and followed the strict SOPs in place for physical distancing.

Among the booths at the camp were the glucometer booth, cholesterol booth, bone scan, eye scan, heart scan, orthopaedic consultation, skin consultation and free mammogram vouchers.

Each person was given a health passport where their records were noted for future reference.

The NGO also thanked the doctors and medical student volunteers who took time off from their schedule to help in the medical camp.

Sunil said the team would be organising another medical screening camp on June 12 from noon to 4pm at the Sungai Siput Gurdwara, Perak.

On their next humanitarian mission, he said United Sikhs was raising funds for oxygen concentrators in Delhi, India, which is struggling with the sharp rise in Covid-19 cases.

“There is a team on the ground in Delhi now providing relief and oxygen supply. We hope to send them help as much as we can, ” he said.
