Contribute to a fund to buy medicines for poor slum dwellers attending our OPD/IPD, INR 500

Khajrana is a slum in Indore City with a population of 150000 people, which is increasing rapidly. Khajrana is one of the most challenging slums in issues like maternal and child health, sanitation, malnutrition, poverty and prevalence of common diseases. A majority of the residents are poor and unable to afford the basic necessities of life. Pahal Jan Sahyog Vikas Sansthan provides medical care to poor slum dwellers through their medical centre. These people do not have access to health care facilities, as there is no Government run centre nearby and private health care is unaffordable.

How It Works

• The medical centre is open for all and provides free vaccination, health checkups, medicines and counseling to the local slum dwellers.
• These services are provided with the support of VOLVO Employee Association (staff, infra structure and community awareness programs) and Pahal Jan Sahyog Vikas Sansthan (low cost medicine for fever & cough is provided).
• The NGO has acquired the premises on rent.
• Each patient is charged a minimal fee of Rs. 5/-.
• The staff includes,2 doctors, 1 nurse, 1 LT, 1 counselor, 1 clerk, 1 social worker, 1 maid and a sweeper.
• Cases with serious illness are referred to the Government hospital.

The Statistics

• The NGO currently provides its services to 30-40 patients everyday through the out- patient department.
• The centre runs 6 days a week from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m.
