  Shivanahalli Medical Camp    Shivanahalli is a place, which is about 25kms from Bangalore (towards Bannerghatta). The village has around 17 hamlets, for which medical support is being provided by Sri Ramakrishna Mutt, Shivanahalli branch.
Every Sunday, Ramakrishna Mutt organises free medical camps for the villagers, with respect to skin, heart, eye and diabetes. Specialised doctors are part of this camp from 0730hrs to 1600hrs. 
  OWOF volunteers visited the medical camp and were impressed with the commitment of Ramakrishna Mutt volunteers and doctors’ services. We were given complete insight about the medical camp. We were also provided with information about the requirement of medicines, which are used during the camps. Usually, medicines are collected by Ramakrishna Mutt volunteers from various hospitals located in and around Bangalore. We have agreed to sponsor some of the critical medicines on a monthly basis and deliver the same every month to the medical camp
