practitioners, pediatricians, dermatologist, optometrist,
dentists, gynecologists, nurses and nutritionists.
Deworming treatment was provided to
all patients as well as HIV and blood sugar testing.
Free medication was provided to those
patients in need after receiving prescriptions from the doctors.
Education sessions were provided for
all patients on topics relating to puberty and adulthood, sexual
health, nutrition and healthy eating, and hygiene.

sheets, towels, clothing, stationary sweets and biscuits,
kitchen utensils, food and toys for the children.
