Mumbai: The Ultimate Travelling Camp (TUTC), India’s glamping pioneer and FeM Surgery, Singapore’s largest multi-specialty group joined hands to bring wholesome medical assistance to the pilgrims at Kumbh Mela. With free medical camps set up at Sangam Nivas Camp, Sector 16, Jhusi at Kumbh in Pragyaraj, the duo has reached out to more than 700 pilgrims including the local population. Started on February 18, the medical drive culminated on the 19th.
The medical camp includes free medical coverage for Orthopaedic, Neurosurgical, General Surgery, Cardiovascular, Breast Screening, Eye Screening and Dental Screening.
Speaking about the initiative, Dhun Cordo, co-founder, TUTC said, “The Ultimate Luxury Camp is not only about glamping but its unwavering commitment to sustainability. While we bring Kumbh in an exquisite setting to the discerning travellers from around the world, we acknowledge our responsibility towards the ground realities. Over 700 persons attended the camp in two days conveys the overwhelming response to our initiative. We remain committed to giving back wherever we operate across India.”
TUTC and FeM Surgery Group spread the word in the nearby villages through flyers and banners put up at Kumbh’s important locations. Besides pilgrims, villagers from the nearby areas attended the camp. Noting that most beneficiaries hail from lesser privileged background, the international medical team ensured that the prescribed medicines are easily available.
The Ultimate Travelling Camp exercises sustainability across segments and is known for its consistent work in the social sector. Medical camps have also been organised in the past in Leh (2016) and Nubra Valley (2017) in association with FeM Surgery.
