As gardens are located in remote areas, a medical facility is not easily available and a tea garden resident/villager has to travel 50-150 km to get access to proper hospitals including eye checkups/testing/cataract surgery. Niswarth arranged a complete eye check-up Free of Cost including travel to Siliguri.
Free dental camps were arranged by Niswarth bringing complete medical facilities, doctors, and equipment to 5 tea gardens free of cost located up to 120 km from Siliguri. However, this could not be extended to more gardens due to a paucity of funds.
A total of 386 persons from 5 Tea Gardens were benefited
Blood Donation Camps
These camps helped the underprivileged section of our society by way of giving blood donation certificates having long-term validity which could be used for giving blood to any person of the family or friends free of cost for medical treatment in the nearby city. It was a matter of great satisfaction that for the first time, tea garden women came forward to give blood in our camps.
