Region 2 - Free walk in Health Awareness Day in Celebration of Queen

Swami Says "Qualities of doctors are Sacrifice, Love and Compassion." This coupled with the love of volunteers, makes a great impact on all the people who attend any medical camp.

On Sunday 20 May 2012, a Free Health Awareness Day was conducted by the Sri Sathya Sai Service Organisation (SSSSO), Region 2, UK in association with Brent Indian Association (BIA), Wembley at BIA premises. BIA kindly offered their whole building for the camp, as they did in the previous years.

Qualified Medical Professionals on behalf of SSSSO(UK) offered their valuable time with love in treating the patients. Dental checks and Eye tests were conducted along with GP advice, Blood Pressure and Blood Sugar level tests. Presentations were made on various Important Health Issues while people were waiting to meet the Doctors. Information desk with leaflets on Diabetes, Heart, Nutrition and anti-smoking were arranged to increase awareness.

The camp was well supported by volunteers, who served with love in the various tasks, such as registration desk, running the kitchen and guiding people throughout the camp.

As a sign of Swami’s Grace, Doctors who initially could not commit that day even turned up at the right time to relieve the other doctors in their respective departments. This was something that was not proposed, but only Divinely planned by Swami.

Due to more people coming in, closing time was extended from 3pm to 6pm. Doctors served with the same zeal and love throughout. The kitchen, with all its volunteers, in their dedication also decided to continue to serve all who attended the camp, as food was plenty. This too was clearly seen as a sign of Swami’s Will. We later came to know that these people had travelled from distance to take advantage of these Yeoman Services offered to them. Swami had indeed taken care of all their needs.

Feedback received from people was very touching. The people who attended the camp and who are new to Sathya Sai Service Organisation and the standards set by Swami were so amazed at the love, care and guidance they received from the Doctors and Volunteers. Most of those who attended were able to utilise the medical checks, diagnosis and treatment options that were made available and which is difficult to get under one roof, in this country.

We thank Swami from the bottom of our hearts, for giving us this wonderful opportunity to render service to the community.
