On the 24th of June 2018, BAPS Charities held its 2nd Health Fair in Lenasia, South Africa. Building on the previous theme of health and wellness for an individual focused on the mind, body and spirit, this year’s event focused on maximising the strength of those components. In other words, “to be the best we can be”.
Guest speakers at this year’s event included specialists in the field of pediatric nutrition, mental strength and psychology and bone marrow donation. Additional specialists were also invited to provide consultation on the following topics:
- Speech, Therapy and Audiology
- Early Childhood Education
- Craniosacral Therapy
Organ donation was also a key focus of the event and guests had the opportunity to sign up for organ donation should the need arise. Fitness assessments and basic health screening stalls were also available to guests. Approximately 200 people attended the event and the success of the event was measured by the fact that several people with potentially serious health issues were diagnosed from the screening sessions and were directed to receive further medical treatment.
BAPS Charities would like to thank all those who assisted in making this a worthwhile and enriching event, including all health professionals who volunteered their time to participate at the event.
