Free Medical Check-Ups

A group of Korean volunteers from the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOIKA) stopped by Sam's House where they conducted free medical and dental check-ups on all the children.  The children (and didis) were measured for height, weight, and had their blood tested.  Dinesh noted that none of the children cried when having blood drawn.  See Dipika below.

 Dipika doesn't flinch.

 Pushpa yawns.

 Measuring Mamata.  She is quite tall.

 Even the didis were tested and examined.

You may ask how Sam's House fell into such largesse.  Through Dinesh and Rekha's culture and language training organization, they come into contact with lots of expats and volunteers who occasionally donate some time and skills to Sam's House.  It is a wonderful connection and we are grateful.
