Dr Prakash & Mrs Kanan Golecha manned this camp for the fourth year in succession
for the club. Both husband wife have dedicated their life to serving humanity and

The good doctor, blew into his patient’s ears with his truck horn, peered in with
the headlight on his head, and injected fluid to open the nasal and ear blockages.
He cleaned wads of stale wax lodged there along with cotton, paper and matchstick

had remained lodged inside.
Mrs Golecha, his life and work partner, had a table nearby, to give the patients
the medication prescribed by the Doctor as well as the hearing aid machine if required.
The Golechas charge no fees. Only their ticket from Jaipur, medication and hearing
aids distributed are paid by Ruchika. Ruchika Club pays in entirety for the treatment
and aids given.
