On 19th November we had our 55th clinic in Pen and celebrated our 10th year. A few details about the event: 2 neurologists and 1 general physician attended to 107 patients. After distribution of medicines those patients who have been coming for over 3 years and have received over 90% attendance were felicitated with certificates and chocolates. Many of them spoke of how their lives have changed after they started regular medication and follow up. Their heartwarming stories were very encouraging. Caretakers at Pen were then given gifts for their selfless work – from arranging for our hospitality whenever we go to creating awareness about the clinic. A surprise awaited us when one of the patient’s family member decided to felicitate all of us who came from Mumbai for the clinic – doctors and Samman volunteers. A few people in Pen – from the local Chemist and Sweet shop owners to the Principal of a school nearby who help in creating epilepsy awareness were felicitated, after which all of us enjoyed a sumptuous lunch. This truly made our 10th year a memorable one.
