The club to its credit has been carrying forward many permanent projects.
BRINGING MATERNAL CARE TO EXPECTANT MOTHERS
One of the signature permanent projects of the our club is its MATERNITY CAMP conducted on the first Monday of every month at Indian Heritage Centre , Kormangala, Bangalore.
The club conducted its 68th maternity camp on 5th July 2015. Through the camp, our club has been earnestly bringing maternal care to the expectant mothers, from needy families, that other wise might be unreachable to them. On any given camp day 25- 30 expecting mothers avail the benefits of the camp.
Pregnant women are screened by specialist doctors, data entered is recorded in a booklet given to each women, Fe, Ca ,multi vitamin tablets for the entire month and TETVAC injections are given to each of the women. Those who require further investigations , blood tests, scanning are referred to diagnostic labs. The entire cost is borne by our club. The expecting women are referred to the Referral hospital, J C Road for delivery. At the camp the expectant mothers are sensitised about reproductive health, importance of pre and post natal care, family planning, information about labour etc.Recently Pranayama and yoga sessions for the pregnant women for easy delivery were started
The necessary expenses for each camp is around Rs 25,000 to Rs 30,000. It is being met by voluntary contributions and the donors are invited to the camp.
HEALTH CAMP IN SIDDAGANGA MUTT
The well know Siddaganga Mutt in Tumkur houses 10,000 students.
LCB BTM Nightingale is working towards bringing health care to all the students of Siddaganga Mutt. The club has co-ordinated with technicians and doctors from Thathaghat , Panacea, Srinivasa health care and Lions West Eye Hospital to conduct health camps every Saturday at Siddaganga mutt.

Children who need spectacles are listed and spectacles are provided the next week. The club has been providing uniforms and toiletries to the visually impaired children of the mutt at a cost of around Rs.1, 50,000 every year.
All this will cost the club around twenty lakh rupees.
Our club co-ordinated with Narayana Hrudayalaya and has set up a cardiac center in the Primary Health Center in Marasur village in Anekal taluk. The facility was inaugurated on 23-2-2014. Patients are screened and ECG is done at the Primary health center. This is relayed to Narayana Hrudayalaya via internet. At the hospital doctors monitor the relayed ECGs 24/7. The ECG sent is immediately analysed and measures to be taken and medicines to be prescribed are conveyed to the Primary health center. If hospitalization is required the patient is transferred to the hospital.
This facility has been a great boon for the people of surrounding villages as they can get primary investigation done in the nearby health center and need to go to the hospital only if there is an emergency.
