Examining Microbes through Foldscope at Sikandarpur Medical Camp

Dayalbagh Educational Institute every fortnight organises free medical camps for villages nearby Dayalbagh, Agra. Medical aid is provided by experts from different medical fields, free drug distribution is done to the patients at the camp. Besides this we also organise hole in the wall, an educative campaign for the children in the village where they can experiment with computers, learn english and science. We organized a foldscope workshop as a part of hole in the wall program and the children participated enthusiastically.

There were shown microbes on their fingers, clothes and educated on personal hygiene which includes oral, foot, hair, body, cloth hygiene. Videos related to personal hygiene were shown to them and a  leaflet containing hygienic practices were given to them. Personal hygiene kits were distributed to the children, so that they get a  flavor of them and make a habit of using them to maintain their hygiene.  These kits included a toothbrush, toothpaste, nail cutter, sanitiser, soaps( for body and hair).
