UCSD’s Project RISHI just completed it’s second annual summer trip to Anandwan, Maharashtra, India. The trip was extremely rewarding and eye-opening. Students conducted health education camps for blind and deaf children regarding first aid, nutrition, and personal hygeine. They wrapped leprosy wounds at 5 AM and got to see different patients in the leprosy hospital and children’s hospital. They met with doctors and learned a lot about the disabling nature of leprosy. They also interacted with the Swaranandwan orchestra, donating $7000 to their cause 🙂
We hope to continue our efforts with the health camps and orchestra in the future. Thanks to all of our donors who helped us reach these goals!
Pictures and videos will be up soon!
