But in the river-islands, mothers barely get to seek healthcare services let alone do a thorough health check of their child due to lack of physical facilities in those areas. To provide quality and necessary health services to these communities, hospital ships roam around from one char to another in a span between 2-3 months. #savelives #healthforall #everysmilematters #friendshipngo ...
