Free Medical Care
For the over 21% of Indian population living below the poverty line, finding good quality, affordable medical care is but a distant dream. Thousands die every-day due to lack of timely medical care. Especially concerning is the rate of child mortality in rural areas. Health statistics indicate that 1 child dies every 15 seconds with over 2 million children under 5 years old dying every year due to lack of medical care.
Moved by the pitiable condition of the poor and underprivileged, Jagadguru Kripalu Chikitsalaya (JKC) established 3 multi-specialty hospitals in poor rural areas for the material upliftment and physical welfare of those in need. These hospitals are equipped with state of the art machinery, labs and provide completely free medical services to the local residents.
JKC Hospitals also conduct various medical camps throughout the year, including Cataract Surgery Camps, Blood Donation Camps, Heart Health Checkup Camps, etc. JKC hospitals also organize health awareness programs in surrounding rural villages. All of the JKC doctors are highly educated, well established in their respective fields and countries. They have voluntarily joined the hospitals to selflessly offer their services to humanity and give back to the society.
Over 3Million patients have benefitted from the services offered by these hospitals since 2003.
