The 7-membered survey, assessment and treatment medical team of Medical Service Centre, led by Dr. Shahriar Alam, Executive Member, MSC WB State Committee has set foot for the flood and landslide devastated areas of Sikkim, starting from Siliguri, West Bengal on the early morning hours of 9th October, 2023. This medical relief team comprises of 2 doctors, 3 medical students and 2 health workers. The team, at first, is due to reach Rangpo via Gorubathan. The plan, thereafter, is to work at Rangpo which is severely affected by the flash floods but not under due focus. Then, as the situation evolves, the team will proceed towards Singtam. This medical team is well- equipped to provide immediate medical aid, medicines and cater to medical relief work. Their role is also to survey the nearby areas, make proper assessments of the damage caused by the disaster, report and thereby to formulate further plan of action.

MSC in its stand for Right of People to Health is committed to stand by people fighting for demoratic rights.

In this complex Covid-19 situation, MSC volunteers have been trying to work out practical application of the the guidelines for us who are working alone in the peripheries, protest non-availability of PPE at all levels, while also trying to provide some PPE as per their collection. Again they are monitoring application of these guidelines at the hospital and community level.

When the Cyclone AMPHAN crashed in Southern Bengal in this situation, they addressed the plight of the victims relief and mobile calls possible with social distancing and others precautions.


“The progressive world is necessarily divided into two classes -those who take the best of what there is and enjoy it – those who wish for something better and try to create it. Without these two classes the world would be badly off. They are the very conditions of progress, both the one and the other. Were there none who were discontented with what they have, the world would never reach anything better”
