Mother’s Day Camp

The epilepsy association Nellore chapter holds regular epilepsy camps with free distribution of medicines at outreach areas. Free epilepsy camp was held on May 5th at Pragati Charities at Nellore. The charity has around 250 mentally challenged children. In the last camp 22 children had epilepsy (Dec 2012), now there are 28 children. It was noted that most children had hypoxic brain damage with congenital hemiplegia. It was felt that more awareness among pregnant women is required and the association plans to do the same.
