Sanvedana Foundation – a city–based Epilepsy Support Group has organised a matrimonial camp exclusively for epilepsy patients, on November 21. There will also be experts’ lectures for patients and their patients.

Addressing media, founder director of ‘Sanvedana’ Yashoda Vakankar said, "Providing a platform for the epilepsy patients to share their experiences, the group was started in 2004. By the time, we come across the difficulties faced by epilepsy youngsters, while looking for life partner, Sanvedana started vivah.aarogya.com. It’s special online matrimonial bureau for people suffering from Epilepsy, Cancer, HIV, Disability and other special needs."

Sanvedana conducted its first matrimonial camp in 2008, which was responded hugely from the members across the country. The second camp has been organised on November 21 at G L Apte Hall, Apte Road, Deccan Gymkhana from 9 am to 2 pm.

‘Epilepsy marriage bureau’ is the brainchild of Sanvedana member Mohan Phatak. Phatak said, "Particularly for the girls and their parents is it difficult to manage marriage. Sometimes, marriages occur by cheating and hiding the diseases. We at Sanvedana try to clear their doubts and prejudices."

During the last matrimonial camp, eight couples were married, one of those couples is going to share experiences at the upcoming camp. Neurologist Dr Rahul Kulkarni, marriage counsellor Vandana Kulkarni and activist–writer Dr Anil Awachat would guide at the camp.
