SHINE Humanity/ CDRS – BEGH Maternal and Child Facility  in Bagh-Dhere, Swat on June 16 and 17 in collaboration with the Khyber Medical College [KMC], Peshawar. The KMC team of 12 medical students  and 13 physicians comprised  of  pediatricians, dermatologist, gynecologist,ENT specialist, ophthalmologist,  primary care physicians and  was led by Prof.  Ijaz, Vice Principal of KMC. Free check up was provided to all who could not afford the very nominal fee of Rs.30 [ $0.32].   850  residents from Bagh Dhere and surrounding areas received a check up  over the two days and were given free medicines if needed. 40 per cent of the beneficiaries  were women,35 percent were children, and 25 percent were men. It is encouraging to have a high turn out of females in this mostly male-dominated area.
We would like to thank the staff and students of Khyber Medical College for coming to Bagh Dhere and providing  their specialized care to the residents of this remote area of Swat.
