SMIMS docs in training deliver festive cheer to Old Age Home

The Department of Community Medicine at the Sikkim Manipal Institute of Medical Sciences (SMIMS) was at the Old Age Home at Jalipool on 03 December, Wednesday, to reach gifts and assistance worth Rs. 30,000. The initiative was not a one-off engagement, and the Department of Community Medicine had been on the project for a while, having organized a charity show in July to raise funds for the venture. The fund was then used to procure materials for the elderly inmates at the Home. The gifts included blankets, shawls, materials for daily use and ration. The handing over was held in the presence of Dean, SMIMS, Air Marshal (Retd) Dr. GS Joneja, and administrators of Old Age Home. The initiative was facilitated by the 2012 Batch MBBS students. Earlier, in July 2014, the Department of Community Medicine, SMIMS had also organized an eye camp at the Old Age Home.
