Pujya Bhaishri believes that along with spiritual uplifting via satsang, service to others is of utmost importance. Thus, a medical camp was organised during this 32nd Navratri Anushthan at Sandipani Vidyaniketan under the guidance of Pujya Bhaishri. The table below provides brief details of the various medical camps held during the Navratri event in 2013. There were two types of camps held: one was through Sandipani Vidyaniketan and the other through Lions Hospital.
Special thanks to Takshashilaben Kapadia, Sarojben Joshi, Kiranben Dave and Shrimati Champaben Sureshbhai Rathod for their voluntary service during these medical camps every year.
The entire medical camp was sponsored by Manjulaben Rameshchandra Patel, Shri Kishorbhai Patel and Jaihind Parivar.
A total of 3,461 patients benefited from this service. These patients were provided free laboratory investigations, ECG, sonography, X-rays and 5 days treatment where applicable. In addition, 14 patients will be provided free medication for life.
Our hearty thanks to all the people involved in these medical camps including the Rishikumars of Sandipani.
