Health issues are neglected by the parents of migrant children in every brick field.  The safety measures, health and hygiene are hardly maintained by the honours of the brick fields. The children are malnourished, deprived of basic facilities and their basic rights are violated. The Brick field schools Project has been intervening to ensure the basic facilities, basic rights by providing education, nutritious food and free medical camps to ensure the good health of the children and the parents: reintegrating the children by mainstreaming the boys in government schools and girls to residential boarding schools in their own native places in Nawada, Bihar with Nawada Intervention Initiative. The project conducts awareness and sensitization programme through, street play, drama, skit and puppet show to sensitize the parents and children in the brick field schools. The main focuses of the medical camps are to ensure the good health of migrant children and their family members, providing free medicines for them as they cannot afford to go to hospitals, making them aware of health and hygiene, common sicknesses in the brick kilns, assisting them to get the facilities from the government medical schemes for the poor people.  The local teachers are assisting the pregnant mothers to avail the medical facilities from ASHA Health centres and hospitals nearby. This year Brick Field Schools Project has organized 20 health camps   for 1600 patients in different locations of 4 Districts (North 24 PGS, South 24 PGS, Hooghly and Nadia) at 7 locations Kaikala, Uttarpara, Kalyani, (Majher Chor) Tona (Bhangar), Dhaltitha( Basirhat), Akra and Pujali. The camps are yet to be conducted in 3 locations. The project hires the competent and certified doctors from Kolkata to diagnose the symptoms of the patients and prescribe the medicines accordingly.  The major sicknesses or serious illness patients are referred to hospitals.
