Daily 6 mobile vans visit 9 villages in prescheduled manner with periodicity of 14 days covering 108 villages and provide qualified medical help including medicines to poor village people. In addition, 20 villages are covered by Sunday camps. Dental-optometry van provides complete dental care.

The mobile ophthalmic van is fully equipped with eye clinic setup with computerized diagnostic set up. It provides free eye check up and also provides spectacles at a nominal cost. Those detected with cataract are referred to central hospital for free surgery with IOL. In both these vans, people are tested for blood sugar and blood pressure and those having abnormal readings are guided for further treatment. Very surprisingly, we find that incidence of hypertension and diabetes even in village poor people is about 40 % and 20 % respectively varying from village to village.

The mobile tele-medicine van has facility of ECG. The ECG of the patient in the remote rural area is immediately reported to a specialist in Ahmedabad through internet. In about half an hour's time the feedback from the specialist is available and the patient is suitably guided.

Diabetes is termed as silent killer as during the initial phase it does not have noticeable symptoms and often by the time it is detected it can damage the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, or nerves and may lead to severe complications. From our data of testing of about 10000 rural patients from Feb. 2012 to May 2012 it was very surprising to find that more than 20 % of this rural population had diabetes.

Hence we have started Project Diabetes with an objective to create mass awareness, prevention, early detection, and treatment of diabetes for this poor village population free of cost to the extent possible. If it is detected early and treated it can save them from severe complications.

 

Besides healthcare, SHRC has started (from July 2012) providing education services to poor people of Ahmedabad. Today it has 180 students studying in morning and evening batches and also operating school through Padmavati Education Trust.
