The main objective of this project was to create awareness amongst people living in slums about the low cost, “generic medicines”. The underprivileged people miss their one time meal if they go to a doctor and purchase medicines prescribed by the doctor at any of the medical stores. This project was meant to draw the attention of these underprivileged to go for the low cost medicines. The team was successful in making them understand the good side of the government’s perspective of lending help through this generic medicine counter. Now people are aware of this low cost drug counter at Janatha Bazaar, Civil Hospital, Belgaum. Laxmi learnt that it is very hard to convince people about something that they are not aware of, but if one is dedicated and determined, you can easily make them understand your motive.
