After a brief absence due to technical as well as logistic difficulties,
free medical camps were revived in 1997. This time every effort was
made to publicise and promote the importance of such camps, in
delivering preventive, curative and rehabilitative care. As a result,
there has been overwhelming public participation in these camps which
are now being conducted four times a week in various places. The mobile
clinic of GEMS Hospital has rendered free medical aid to lakhs of people
in and around Mavelikkara for the past twenty years.
