Medicine were also distributed free of cost to every patients visiting the camp.
At least seven doctors of different specialisations, such as paediatrics, medicine, dermatology and dentist were present.

However, due the remote location of the villages, though they are under the Imphal West District jurisdiction, medical facilities were scarce.

He said Mayai Lambi villagers are very happy and expressed their gratitude at the effort and the trouble the doctors took.
