Over 2,000 pilgrims benefit from free health camp
More than 2,000 pilgrims at Pashupatinath temple have benefitted of the free healthcare camp organized by Buwa Care Pvt Ltd. This initiative, in partnership with Maharshi Deepak Prathistan, Pashupati Development Trust, and Kathmandu Metropolitan City, occurred every Monday during the month of Shrawan.
Dr Anam Pyakurel, Buwa Care’s chairperson, says that the camp extends first aid, free medication, and doctor consultations to those in need. “Approximately 300 individuals received cost-free health assessments each Shrawan Monday,” he says.
Sushma Rijal, CEO of Buwa Care, says that a dedicated team of three physicians, five nurses, and five lab technicians was mobilized to manage the camp’s operations.
Buwa Care, established in April 2023, self-funded this healthcare campaign. Its primary objective is to provide affordable healthcare services to the elderly. The senior citizens who become Buwa Care members by paying an annual fee of Rs 30,000 receive biannual whole body check-ups and doctor consultations.
Furthermore, Buwa Care extends round-the-clock telemedicine services, enabling senior citizens to consult doctors at any time. A specialized dietician devises a year-long meal plan for members, coupled with complimentary physiotherapy sessions.
Dr Pyakurel says it is important for leisure for senior citizens. “Buwa Care organizes motivational, yoga, and meditation classes, fostering social connections among members,” he says. Additionally, the organization arranges brief pilgrim excursions for the elderly too.
