DHAKA, Dec 23, 2016 (BSS) - Save Life Foundation and Autistic Foundation of Bangladesh have set up a stall at the Annual Ananda Mela-2016 at the Officers' Club in the city to provide free medical check up on kidney disease and autism.

"We are providing free medical checkup on kidney disease and autism at our stall at the three-day Ananda Mela along with raising awareness among the people on the disease," Dr Kazi Minhajul Abedin, Chairman of Autistic Foundation of Bangladesh told BSS.

"We would be able to make the people aware on kidney diseases and autism through providing free-medical checkup," he added.

Save Life Foundation is launching free medical checkup as there are nearly two crore kidney patients in the country.
