The medical camp is being organised at Mumbai Metropolitian Region Development Authority (MMRDA) ground at Bandra Kurla Complex on Feb 19, 2016. The organisers have also tied up with 52 other hospitals for free surgical procedures under government schemes.

"The low income group society is deprived of several healthcare interventions due to poor economic conditions; we want to thus support the masses. A total of 50,000 spectacles will be distributed, " said Chairman of R.K. HIV AIDS Research & Care Centre Dharmendra Kumar.

Kumar also said that they will try to get listed into the Guinness World Records through the initiative.
