Pediatric doctors with the team noted the high incidence of upper respiratory tract, ear infections, and malnutrition among the children. Adults were mostly diagnosed with hypertension and cataract. Oral health was also a concern, with dentists noting that simple problems were aggravated because they were left untreated. Residents apparently have little or no access to basic medical and dental care because of poor economic conditions. One resident commented that whatever money they have, they spend on food.
A total of 261 children and 430 adults received much-needed medical attention for various complaints; 105 patients were given dental treatment. Everyone also received free medicine and vitamins.
