Every year, World Health Day is celebrated on the 7th of April to mark the anniversary of the founding of the WHO in 1948. Each year a theme is selected for World Health Day which highlights a priority area of concern for the WHO. This year the theme was ageing and health and it studied the health needs of the elderly. In keeping with the theme KJO choose to celebrate World Health Day by having an event which would give free medical checkups to all the people of the Khafji area. The main targeted audience was the elderly, but youngsters and employees of KJO including their families were encouraged to participate. The event demanded a logo which would represent it completely and Miraj certainly delivered.
The event was held on the 15th and 16th of April in a tent wrapped in graphics designed solely by Miraj. On the inside were booths, 8 in total which each had medical staff present for various checkups. Visitors could indulge in free medical checkups and receive their reports instantly. In case any person was in critical condition the staff was well equipped to have the person admitted immediately. All across the tent were graphics with helpful tips which to better the health of any individual, again all designed by Miraj. Attendees were given diabetes check up kits or blood pressure kits depending on their health conditions. All in all, the entire event was a grand success and the message of adding life to years definitely came across.
