More than 500 people availed the benefits of a medical camp that was organized by the oldest temple in Bahrain. As part of their ongoing celebration marking 200 years of Shreenathji (Shree Krushna) Hindu Temple, The Thattai (Bhatia) Hindu Community (THC) in association with Al-Hilal Medical Center, Adliya, organized a free medical camp.
The camp took place at the T.H.M.C. Auditorium, Al Hadrami Avenue, Manama, where scores of people were in attendance.
“This is the first medical camp that we are probably arranging on a large scale in association with Al Hilal Hospital, Bahrain. This camp is open to not only the devotees but to everybody in Bahrain. We are proud as we expecting scores of people to take advantage of this free medical camp. We are looking forward to having this as a regular event in association with the hospitals in Bahrain” said Bhagwan Kumar Asarpota during the event.
Over the last 30 years, The Thattai (Bhatia) Hindu Community has been organizing four camps a year for the Salmaniya Medical Complex (SMC).
“We thank all the participants, supporters and volunteers who came forward, supported and cooperated with us during the event. We mainly thank Al Hilal Medical Center, Adliya team for their presence and support” stated the organizers.
At the beginning of September, THC had hosted a medical camp which saw around 120 people including Hindu Temple devotees coming forward for donating blood.
The community also embraced the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the Shreenathji Temple in August. After interacting with the Indian diaspora and the leadership of Bahrain, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his debut visit to Bahrain concluded his tour with prayers at the 200 years old Shreenathji Temple in Manama.
A uniquely embroidered wall hanging of Shreenathji was also gifted to the temple in Bahrain by the Indian Prime Minister who stated that the temple manifested the strong ties between India and Bahrain.
