In an endeavour to reach out to the local population and render all possible help while performing its operational role in Counter Insurgency Environment, Moltuk Batallion under the aegis of 26 Sector Assam Rifles conducted a medical camp in Zoldam village, Chandel district on 28 May 2019.
Zoldam is one of the remotest villages in the state and lacks basic healthcare facilities. Such initiative by Moltuk Battalion has not only enabled patients to be treated close to their home but also helped in increasing awareness about cleanliness, hygiene and healthy living.
The medical camp witnessed huge participation. In view of the upcoming monsoons and its related ailments, the medical staff carried out counselling on hygiene and sanitation, the importance of safe drinking water and preventive measures to avoid contagious diseases.
A total of 62 men, 83 women and 65 children were provided medical check-up and medicines by the Regimental Medical Officer. Such efforts have always catered to the needs and aspirations of the villages in the Battalion Area of Responsibility and have been appreciated by them.
