Students of NIT Uttarakhand actively participated in the cleaning operation and illustrated varied waste management techniques by means of presentations, posters, and holding interactive sessions with the villagers. The students of NIT, UTTARAKHAND also organized a free medical camp in the beautiful village of DEVLI ,located at a distance of 5Km from SRINAGAR.

Dr. Vimal Gusain , physician at the BASE HOSPITAL ,SRINAGAR took out some time from his busy schedule to offer service to the villagers. In this camp , general check-up was done and medicine were distributed to the villagers. Around 80 people attended the camp and took advice from doctor. At last, Dr. Vimal gave a seminar on Swine Flu. He talked about the cause of Swine Flu and precaution to be taken against swine flu.
