Salman Khan Opens a Medical Camp

 

To whom much is given, much is expected – and Bollywood actor Salman Khan is taking this to heart.

Salman has opened a charitable medical camp at his own house to attend to a small number of patients – all expenses paid. The star, who is currently shooting in Dublin, has maintained a low profile about it and has instead asked his friends in NGOs to spread the word as discreetly as possible about the arrangements made for medical consultation and treatment of patients every week.

A source close to the Khan family revealed, “There is a garden opposite Salman’s apartment in Bandstand at Bandra, where he has arranged for a medical camp every Tuesday. Currently, there only one doctor, who attends to the 40 patients on that day. The cost of each patient (Rs 300) is borne directly by Salman.”

Aside from the cost of consultation the actor also takes care of the cost of the follow-up treatment, if necessary.

“This is absolutely Salman’s own initiative, which he doesn’t want to share with anybody. He didn’t try to get a reputed specialist to come in for the make-shift medical camp as it would attract attention. It’s just a chair, a table and patients in need of urgent attention.”

“The doctor comes in by 11 in the morning and begins attending to the patients that’ve gathered there. There are a few personal staff from Salman’s entourage, who help out with the patients. The requirements are noted down and serious cases in need of medical attention are referred to hospitals, the cost of which is borne by Salman. Bhaidoesn’t want to talk about it because it is not like his Being Human initiative, which has now become a brand and is governed by marketing needs,” the source adds.
