At Rs 2 per consultation, Salman Khan has opened up the medical camp right opposite his house in Mumbai.
Salman Khan, who is known for his charitable initiatives, has now gone a step ahead in doing his bit for those suffering from cancer.
According to reports, the actor has opened a medical camp for cancer patients in need of financial help. The camp is running out of a garden opposite his house at Galaxy Apartment in Bandra, Mumbai and charges patients Rs. 2 per consultation.
A source said, "Every morning, there is a long queue outside his home of people armed with medical files and papers. Salman has provided a doctor along with two bodyguards to attend to the patients. Sometimes the charge is a measly Rs. 2 and sometimes it is done free of cost."
Another source said, "Salman has long been associated with cancer awareness. Time and again, cancer patients have sought help from him. What better place to start the initiative than in front of his own house?"
Sources also said that for an extremely needy patient, the matter is referred to Salman, who takes over the case. "It's been 13 years since Salman got involved in helping cancer patients. He has not stopped working on it ever since."
