Kailash Satyarthi Children's Foundation

Kailash Satyathi Children’s Foundation (KSCF) organized a health and Aadhar Card enrolment camp in Koderma, Jharkhand. The health camp organized in association with Aryan Hospital (the nodal hospital under “Prime Minister Jan Arogya Program)’ in Koderma facilitated health check ups for 336 persons including children and women. Through this scheme, 50 persons were also issued the “Golden Card” which allows for free treatment upto Rs.5 Lakh.

KSCF also organized an Aadhar Card enrolment camp in two places which benefitted people from 11 Bal Mitra Grams. During this camp, 84 Aadhar Cards were issued. Aadhar Card is a mandatory document for linking with various social security schemes. The absence of Aadhar Card causes obstacles in access to benefits like scholarships, cash amount of Mid Day Meals and other social benefits for children and their families.
