Any Initiative can be successful if the health is ensured, during our initial visits to rural and tribal areas we found that issues from skin diseases, to malnutrition were present. And the approach towards health and hygiene were very ignorant mainly due to superstition. In spite of many medical set up available at the town, but were insufficient to reach upto remote tribal hamlets. In order to cater all these issue, we initiated Dr. Ghate Health Centre.
Dr. Ghate was a reputed doctor in Pen, and was known for helping poor by providing free medical help. And Dr. Ghate generously donated his own traditional home to us to manage these activities. Hence this centre was started on 4th March 2004.
Through these centers Medical help is provided to the people in the vicinity and also regular medical camp is conducted at various remote tribal hamlets.
Along with providing health services, health education is also promoted to ensure the preventive health care approach is dispensed till each and every house in the remote tribal hamlets.
