Some of the volunteers plus the Blue Ventures Doctor have been helping the village doctor Joseph and a team of vaccinators with a polio vaccination campaign (funded by UNICEF and other NGOs) which has involved vaccinating all children under five years in Andavadoaka and surrounding villages.

The volunteers found this an enormously rewarding and educational experience where they not only got to interact with people in the village and get an insight into their lives but also felt they were contributing in a positive way. The village doctor and the rest of the team includign a UNICEF representative were grateful to Blue Ventures for the help they received.
