Moreh, June 16: While the Moreh Hospital is facing severe infrastructure deficiencies and man power shortage, a free mobile medical camp is being organised by the Hospital authority to serve the medical requirements of the denizens of Moreh.

Despite suffering from several shortcomings such as absence of quarter facility for the staff of Moreh Hospital, irregular water supply, non-payment of salaries for four months etc, the mobile medical camp organised by the Hospital since June 14 has so far treated 484 people besides providing medicines according to needs.

A doctor of the Hospital involved in the mobile camp informed that during and after the recent spate of violence at Moreh, the Hospital staff were overtaxed with extra duty but the situation was promptly redressed as the Medical Directorate sent additional staff to the border town.

If the mobile team is informed of any people residing at remote areas unable to come to Moreh but in need of medical service, the team will not hesitate to move to such areas, said one of the staff.

The free mobile medical team has so far covered Ngamkhei Veng, Gilgal, Hebron, Old College Road, Moreh Khunou, Moreh Turel Wangma and Premnagar.

The team is preparing to go to other places which have not covered yet, said the doctor.

On the other hand, the medical camp organised by MAPI Council in collaboration with social organisations based at Moreh since yesterday concluded today.

At the medical camp held today at Kondong Lairembi ground, 250 people were examined and treated.

The number of patients at the medical camp yesterday was 300.
