The camp started on the 11th January, 2015 and ended on the 25th Jan’15. 56 patients aged between 4 months to 18 years from various places like West Salbari, Senpara, Ranicherra, Baintguri, Gopal bagan, Durga gaon (Jaigaon) from Jalpaiguri, Thunkirjhar, Cooch Behar and Darjeeling district have undergone the surgery.
