SADAREM camps for differently-abled being held - Nizamabad- Telengana
The SADAREM (Software for Assessment of Disabled Access Rehabilitation and Empowerment) camps for identification of differently-abled beneficiaries of pensions and other purposes are being held at four Area Hospitals at Bodhan, Banswada, Armoor and Kamareddy, and also at the Government Medical College-cum-Teaching Hospital here.
The differently-abled have been divided in accordance with their disability and entrusted with hospitals. Those suffering from physical disability and visual impairment need to consult doctors at Board 1 in Nizamabad, and those with physical infirmity, visual and hearing impairments and mental retardation should appear before Board 2 here.
Board 3, in Banswada, is for the physically-handicapped and visually impaired. Patients with similar conditions can also call on Board 4 at Kamareddy and Board 5 at Bodhan. Only those who have not appeared before the boards earlier should appear henceforth, Project Director of District Rural Development Agency P. Venkatesham said. Those who suffer physical and visual problems should go to Banswada, Kamareddy and Bodhan hospitals and the people suffering from all other impairments need to come to Nizamabad hospital, he said.
The camps would continue till October 31 and all patients with such problems would be examined and issued certificates.
